Book groups for Youth

Contact Monica at 715-426-3484 if you have any questions about youth book clubs.

If school is cancelled due to winter weather, youth books clubs will also be cancelled.

In these clubs, kids receive a copy of the book from the library and come prepared to discuss the book. The book for the next month is handed out at the end of each discussion session. Future books are chosen by voting from a list that is compiled by taking student recommendations. Kids who attend club are allowed to keep their copy of the book. If you take a copy of the book, but do not attend, you may either pay for your copy of the book or not be allowed to pick up future books. A snack is provided.
