All students are invited to be part of this student-created book club. Students selected topics they want to talk about at each meeting. We get together and talk about books that are in the school library, the public library, bookstores, and personal libraries. We also watch professional and student made book trailers. This group meets once a month during the grade level lunch and activity period. Grab your lunch and come down to the library to talk books!
The final meeting of the year is Monday, May 14th.
