Book Clubs

Everyone is welcome!   No book purchase is necessary to participate.    Books to be read are chosen by the group members, with recommendations by the librarians.    For more info:     Rebecca 684-3813.


Teen Book Club  -     Call the library if interested  (715-684-3813) and we will get you a free copy of the next book (ask for Hope;  Hope Melander is the facilitator).    Come give us your ideas!         This group has met regularly before on the last Tuesday of each month at 3:45 for about 45 minutes, but day and time are up for negotiation.  B-W Bus #9 stops right at the library at 3:35.   Or occasional meetings can happen just once or twice a year for busy students.


Afternoon Book Club:  (ages 18 and over) -  Meets last Tuesday of each month at 1:00pm.

Books chosen are slightly older popular titles so that we can order multiple copies from the MORE system and no book purchase is necessary to participate.

Tell the Wolves I’m Home            by Carol Rifka Brunt




It is 1987, and only one person has ever truly understood fourteen-year-old June Elbus--her uncle, the renowned painter Finn Weiss. Shy at school and distant from her older sister, June can only be herself in Finn's company; he is her godfather, confidant, and best friend. So when he dies, far too young, of a mysterious illness her mother can barely speak about, June's world is turned upside down. But Finn's death brings a surprise acquaintance into June's life--someone who will help her to heal, and to question what she thinks she knows about Finn, her family, and even her own heart. 

If interested, e-mail Joni at:       Please order your copy of the book from the MORE system or ask the library staff for help.
