Book Discussion Group
Do you have an interest in reading and a need to talk about what you’ve read with others? One of the joys of reading, besides being swept up in narrative, is being able to gather with others who have shared this reading experience, discussing themes and overall impressions. Youth Department staff lead two monthly book discussion groups, one for grades 7-9 and another (coming soon!) for grades 10-12 during the school year (September-May). Interested in joining? To register and arrange a pickup for the book and activity, please email the youth desk at firstname.lastname@example.org or call the youth desk at 319-859-3282.
