Teen Book Club is back!

Your wish was granted! Starting in January every second Thursday will be Teen Book Club. This go around will be a little different. We will all read the same book and we will choose books by drawing them out of a suggestion box. The suggestion box is open to anyone who would like to make recommendations. Multiple copies will be available for checkout. The book for January is Legend by Marie Lu. We will be meeting on Thursday, January 10th at 4:00 pm. Reserve your copy today!
