  • Book Club

    Amber Lovett, Moderator
    Book Club meets on Thursdays in the Library

    Some read obsessively, some read to pass the time and some join to motivate themselves to pick up a book. Whatever the reason may be, Book Club members meet every other Friday in the library to discuss the book of choice. Sometimes it's to write a review, to meet an author, to evaluate the story, or sometimes it’s just to talk. In addition, the club members plan to attend the Tucson Festival of Books and participate in Young Adult Choices through the International Literacy Association, which allows the club to read books that have yet to be published, and evaluate them. Whatever the club does, the goal remains the same- discover and enjoy new literature, and spread our love of reading.
