If you’re in grades 6-12, like to read books or comics, and want to meet other people your age that do too, we’ve got two different clubs that you’ll love!
YA Book Club is a group of people in grades 6-12 that meet each month to talk about a book we’ve all read. Participants can get a free copy of the book to keep each month at each meeting or the YS Reference desk. Everyone votes on the titles we read so there’s always an opportunity to read and discuss the books that YOU want so be sure to bring suggestions to the meetings.
This list shows the titles we will be discussing on that date.
Thursday, October 22nd from 4:30-5:30PM in BorgWarner East – The Martian by Andy Weir
Thursday, November 19th at 7:30PM at the Kitchen Theatre – This month is special! We’re reading I and You, a play by Lauren Gunderson. Instead of our usual meeting and discussion, we’ll be seeing a performance of the play and then having a talk-back with the director and actors! Participants will have to arrange their own transportation to and from the theater but there is no cost to teens.
December 17th – To be decided by you!
January 21st – To be decided by you!
Join us for a casual, drop-in gaming session each week! We have a huge variety of games to choose from and you’re always welcome to bring your own. Game leaders will be around to help teach games you may not be familiar with. Snacks and refreshments are always provided.
