Not Just for Kids

The Not Just for Kids Book Club is a reading group for adults who enjoy Young Adult and Juvenile literature. No need to hide the fact that you enjoy reading Harry Potter or Divergent! Join in with this group of like-minded adults who realize that some of the best literature is in the YA section of the library.

At this time, the group has no further meetings planned. If you are interested in this reading group, please let the library staff know, because we need more members before restarting the group.
