Teen Book Club

The Book Spot is hosting a teen age book club for the summer (and maybe beyond??). The first meeting will be July 7 at 1pm in the Book Spot conference room. The target age range for this book club will be 6th grade to 12th grade. We have a licensed teacher and librarian hosting the club, so we will work hard to pick books that will please everyone! It is possible that we will have two separate reading groups (middle school and high school) if we have enough kids to support it.
