A book club for middle schoolers who like to have fun, insightful discussion and eat snacks! We meet once a month on Tuesdays to discuss a book. Books are selected by club members. For more information please e-mail Annie, Teen Librarian.
October’s Book: “The Graveyard Book” by Neil Gaiman. Meeting will take place Tuesday October 22nd from 5:30 PM – 6:30 PM in the Teen Room.
“Nobody Owens, known to his friends as Bod, is a normal boy. He would be completely normal if he didn’t live in a sprawling graveyard, being raised and educated by ghosts, with a solitary guardian who belongs to neither the world of the living nor of the dead.
There are dangers and adventures in the graveyard for a boy. But if Bod leaves the graveyard, then he will come under attack from the man Jack – who has already killed Bod’s family. (From Amazon.com)”

Chocolate balls that make you a master of disguise. Four young friends – Nate, Summer, Trevor, and Pigeon – meet the grandmotherly Mrs. White, owner of the Sweet Tooth, and soon learn about the magical side effects of her candies. In addition, the ice cream truck driver, Mr. Stott, has arrived with a few enchanted sweets of his own.
But what about the mysterious man in the dark overcoat and fedora hat? Why are all these “magicians” trying to recruit Nate and his friends? Who should they trust? The mystery deepens and the danger unfolds as the four youngsters discover that the magical strangers have all come to town in search of a legendary, hidden treasure – one that could be used for great evil if it fell into the wrong hands. The kids, now in over their heads, must try to retrieve the treasure first. And so, the war begins….” (From Amazon.com)
