Middle School Book Club

For this month's online Middle School Book Club, we'll be talking about Akata Witch, by Nnedi Okorafor. This book is available to download for free from hoopla with your library card.

Sunny Nwazue lives in Nigeria, but she was born in New York City. Her features are West African, but she's albino. She's a terrific athlete, but can't go out into the sun to play soccer. There seems to be no place where she fits in. And then she discovers something amazing—she is a "free agent" with latent magical power. And she has a lot of catching up to do. Soon she's part of a quartet of magic students, studying the visible and invisible, learning to change reality. But just as she's finding her footing, Sunny and her friends are asked by the magical authorities to help track down a career criminal who knows magic, too.

Sign up is required for the Zoom link!

Teen Graphic Novel Book Club

For teens in grades 6 and up.

This month, we're reading Drawing the Vote by Tommy Jenkins. It is available to download for free with your library card on hoopla.

Coinciding with the 2020 US presidential election, Drawing the Vote looks at the history of voting rights in the United States and how it affects the way we vote today. Throughout the book, author Tommy Jenkins identifies events and trends that led to the unprecedented results of the 2016 presidential election that left American political parties more estranged than ever.

To balance these complex ideas and statistics, Kati Lacker's original artistic style makes the book accessible for readers of all ages. At a time when many citizens are experiencing challenges and apathy about voting and skepticism concerning our bitterly divided government, Drawing the Vote seeks to offer some explanation for how we got here and how every American can take action to make their vote count.
