Love to read YA (Young Adult) Literature? Join us on the first Tuesday of each month for a great selection. This is for all ages 13-101 ... teens and adults are welcome!

This month's selection is I Kill the Mockingbird by Paul Acampora - you don't have to have read To Kill a Mockingbird to enjoy this one! "When Lucy, Elena, and Michael receive their summer reading list, they are excited to see To Kill A Mockingbird included. But not everyone in their class shares the same enthusiasm. So they hatch a plot to get the entire town talking about the well-known Harper Lee classic. They plan controversial ways to get people to read the book, including re-shelving copies of the book in bookstores so that people think they are missing and starting a website committed to “destroying the mockingbird.” Their efforts are successful when all of the hullabaloo starts to direct more people to the book. But soon, their exploits start to spin out of control and they unwittingly start a mini revolution in the name of books." (from GoodReads)

Teens! - This is your chance to have a say in all things teen at the library!  Join our board – there is a one school year commitment – and you get have a say in events, our webpage and eventually our teen area re-design. Board members also get to review the books they are already reading for our webpage – your can let the world know why you really loved or really hated that last book. And, you get tasty snacks while we meet in the Stride Room.

One school year commitment, monthly meetings and minimal outside work required.  New members always welcome.

Board time can often be used for community service hours. Check your organizations requirements.
