  • We are asking that Book Clubs help support the program with a $100 donation. This money could be raised by your club wih a fundraiser or donation from your school or a local supporter. (See ideas in Facilitator Handbook.)
    If you are doing a purchase order with your school, you can print and fill out this invoice. Mail all donations to Mainely Girls, P.O. Box 793, Rockport, Maine 04856.

  • We have added several new titles to our libraries! The Witch of Beaver Creek Mine, an adventure story perfect for middle schoolers, was donated to us by Downeast Books, and Rule of Three, sequel to The Sisters Club, was donated to us by Candlewick Press.

I'm not as shy as I was before I took part in the club; it taught me that my opinion is not dumb and my voice is actually being heard.
