Teen Book Groups

Check out our teen book discussion groups! Currently, the group is divided into two sections – one for middle school and one for high school students. Each group meets once a month in the Browsing Room of the library September through May, and is a great way for teens to connect through meaningful literature. The groups get together at the beginning of each school year to decide which books will be read, and members receive a copy of each title to keep. Both groups are generously sponsored by Hills Bank & Trust.

High School Book Group Meeting:
Introductory Meeting – Saturday, September 2, 12:00-1:00 in the Browsing Room

Middle School Book Group  Meeting:
Introductory Meeting – Saturday, September 2, from 11:00-12:00 in the Browsing Room
