About the Newbery Club





Children in grades 4 and up can be the first to read children's books published this year with Mrs. Herskowitz, the Head of Children and Family Services.  The Newbery Club was formed by Mrs. Gebel a member of the 2006 Newbery Committee who retired from the Northport-East Northport Library in 2014.

Club members meet monthly to discuss books eligible for the Newbery Medal. Read the official guidelines for winning a Newbery Medal here.

They post reviews to the Newbery Club website and hold a Mock Newbery election at the end of the year to see if they can predict the book that will win the official Newbery Medal. Children may join at any time during the year.
