Teen Book Club
Love to read? Join our monthly book club! New to 2017, the Teen Book Club aims to read books in all formats and in all genres. Each month, we’ll read a book in a different format (like e-books!) or a different genre; just like last year, it doesn’t matter what book you read as long as you come ready to talk about it with other teens! Need a book suggestion? Ask a librarian at the 2nd floor info desk. March's theme will be comic books and manga!
