New Teen Book Club at CLP Main

From Emily Carlin's Flickr Stream

I love to read and discuss books- that’s why I became a librarian!  Strangely though, I’ve always been reluctant to join a book club.  I find that the hardest part about committing to one is being required to read a specific book- the same one as everyone else!  Maybe I have a problem with authority, but I just don’t like being told what to read and I bet you don’t either.  That’s why I’ve started a different kind of book club.  The days of having to read the same title as everyone else in order to participate are over, my friends!  CLP Main- Teen is modeling a new kind of book club for teens.  Here’s how it works:

  • Every month the discussion will focus on a different theme.
  • Try to bring a book you’ve read and enjoyed that relates to the theme.
  • Meet other teens who love reading and learn about their favorite books.

So, now you have no excuses.  Participation is as simple as showing up.  In fact, come by even if you don’t have a book in mind to talk about.  Share a little about a great movie you saw or an article you read on the subject.  And by the time you leave, you’ll have a whole list of new titles you’ll want to check out.

Fourth Tuesday of Every Month
4:oo pm to 5 pm
CLP Main- Teen
4400 Forbes Ave.
For more information or to register, contact teensmain@carnegielibrary.org or 412.622.5526

Themes for upcoming book clubs include:
February 28: African American Voices
March 27: Sports, Games, and Gaming
April 24: Poetry and Novels in Verse

Don’t know what to read?  Ask a librarian for a suggestion or check out CLP’s monthly, featured books lists.
