After a brief hiatus, Teen Book Chat is back, and we're ready to discuss new teen books! High school students are encouraged to join us for our monthly book chat meetings, which are held one Saturday a month. For Teen Book Chat, register at the Information Desk and select a title you'd like to read from the books available (selection varies month to month). Read your selected title (each person reads a different title each month), and prepare a short book talk for the group. Attend the monthly meeting, and talk about new teen books! Each person will present their book, and the group can ask questions while learning about great new titles from their peers. Instructions for the book talk are given when you pick up a title. After the meeting, the book is yours to keep!
