Teens + Tweens - join us to talk all things books on the last Wednesday each month!
The Teen/Tween Book Club at the Headquarters Branch of the Alachua County Library District has been around for over three years and now includes community discussion on GoodReads! This virtual platform allows us to safely hear from all of our members (past and present) and to add new members from all around the district!
The meeting itself will be in person, in the Teen Room at Headquarters Library, on the last Wednesday of every month.
We love reading the best new YA Fantasy and Sci-fi, but also enjoy slice of life novels and great bios. We'll even throw in the occasional graphic novel for fun! Check out what we're reading, tell us what's been on your radar, and join us for some scintillating conversation.
For the month of January, we will be reading Gallant by V.E. Schwab. Olivia Prior has grown up at the grim Merilance School for Girls with no no past except for her one treasure, her mother's journal, so when a letter arrives inviting her to come home to ruinous manor, Gallant, she seizes the chance to find out about her family.
For the month of February, in honor of Black History Month, we will be reading Dear Martin by Nic Stone. Writing letters to the late Dr. Martin Luther King Jr., seventeen-year-old college-bound Justyce McAllister struggles to face the reality of race relations today and how they are shaping him.
