Book Nerds Unite! Like to read and discuss? Want a free book? Join us for Teen(ish) Book Club monthly in the library’s meeting room.

Recommended for ages 13(ish)-18(ish). Recent selections have included The Gilded Ones, Fable, and Shadow and Bone. Members vote on upcoming selections and on the date and time of book clubs.

These are casual conversations to which all are invited! The first 10 registrants always receive a free copy of the book.

Up next, something very exciting! The book club, alongside Books-n-Bites, will welcome author Brandon Mull on Wednesday, Oct 11, from 4:30-5:30pm in the library’s Meeting Room. Participants will be able to choose one from among three books (Fablehaven, The Beyonders, or The Candy Shop War), but space is limited for this event so register ASAP if you’d like to join.

TAB (Teen Advisory Board)

TAB is a good way to accumulate volunteer hours, beef up your resume, and meet other bookish teens. Attendance at all meetings is not mandatory – come to as many as you can.
