Middle School/Teen Book Club (for those going into 5th - 9th grades)    

We met twice last summer.  During the school year the group meets less often as participants are busy with schoolwork, but meets occasionally as the group chooses.   Meetings have been on the last Tuesday of each month at 3:45 for about 45 minutes, but day and time are up for negotiation.  Or occasional meetings can happen just once or twice a year for busy students.   B-W Bus #9 stops right at the library at 3:35 (remember a note that morning if you are changing buses).  A snack is provided if groups meets during the schoolyear.    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).    No buying of a book is necessary.  Come have fun and meet other people who like to read too!

    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.
