Good news! We've chosen our book for the book club. Fans of John Green's "The Fault in Our Stars" will be happy to know we are reading another book by Green called "Paper Towns." Copies will be available in the Young Adult Room soon!

Welcome to the new Forbes Library High School (Grades 10-12+) Virtual Book Club


This book club is intended for anyone in grades 10-12 and up. This is the first time we've done a virtual book club and so any thoughts, comments, and feedback would be very helpful in designing this book club to suit your needs.

Participating is simple, just read the book! The best thing about a virtual book club is you don't have to fit in book club meetings around your busy schedule. You can participate in your own time, whenever you want! The title of January's book is TBD but will be announced soon. Every Tuesday I will post a discussion-type post. Thursdays I will post some type of material related to the book- author interviews or a YouTube video, for example. During the middle of each month, I will post asking what everyone wants to read for the next month.

As I mentioned, the title of our first book will be announced soon and copies will be available in the Young Adult Room at Forbes soon after.  Our virtual book club will begin the first week in January!
