The Montgomery Area Public Library will be starting a Teen and Tween Book Club in April. The club is for ages 11 through 17 (or 18 for seniors in high school).

The Book Club will be held once a month, and the first meeting will be on Monday, April 19 at 4:30 pm. Nicole Loffredo, the Library Director, will be leading the group. The initial meeting will used to choose a name for the group and to decide the structure of the group. Nicole said there are lots of options and the students can decide what they feel will be the most fun. She said there will be different themes every month.

It’s requested the Tweens and Teens please pre-register by calling (570) 547-6212 or by going to the library’s website at clicking on the programming tab.

And for you grown-ups who think this sounds fun, you are welcome to join the library’s Adult Book Club.
