Teen Book Club

Wednesday, August 16 @ 6:00-8:00 pm

Teens! Join us for a new program this fall – a Teen Book Club! We will be discussing We Were Liars by E. Lockhart. We will also decide our next few books and discussion dates.

We Were Liars focuses on self-acceptance, family morals, and the possibly-deadly consequences of one's mistakes. It is centered on the wealthy, seemingly perfect Sinclair family.

Multiple copies of the book are now available for check out at the library. Teens going into grades 7-12 are welcome to attend. Click here for more info.
