Book Clubs

Kids & Teen Book Clubs

We have two Book Clubs for kids and teens, Girls Rock and Guys Read. Both Book Clubs focus on Grades 4–8. Do fun activities, have a snack, and talk about books! You can pick up Girls Rock and Guys Read books at the Circulation Desk. If you’d prefer audiobooks, our staff can help you find them in the library. If we don’t have them here, they will help you request them from other libraries.
