Cole Library hosts book groups for teen and adults. Check out our offerings below!
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.
Middle School Group:
Next Meeting: Friday, January 18th, 3:30-4:30 in the Browsing Room
