Every Friday at the Park County Library, the book club meets. During these meetings students are given some food and they read a book. The books they have read so far are Amal Unbound, Wish Tree, The War That Saved My Life, Restart, The Boys in the Boat, and The Insignificant Life of a Cactus. The two instructors are Mrs. Decker and Mrs. Lukas. The book club meets in the Grizzly Room at the Library. The first meeting was on the 4th of January from 2:00-3:00 on Friday. The Grizzly Room is directly across the hall when you walk in.

There will be other books as well this month. This first meeting is for talking about the books that will be chosen. The participants may start reading the book that day as well. Right now the book club is reading the book a Boy Called Bat. The book club is for grades 3-8. The book club has only 3 middle school students. The books are introduced by a trailer most of the time but sometimes they read the first bit of the book.

The snacks handed out are usually cookies and banana bars and when they have them they talk about the theme of the book or chapters they read. Mrs. Decker wishes to see more middle schoolers there. The book club also does an activity that is like one of the settings in the book. They are also thinking of reading the book Ghost.
