The Library Club

When do we meet?
The Library Club meets on Thursdays after school (when school is in session!)
 
What do we do?
In The Library Club we:
  • take care of the library- shelving books, creating displays, decorating for the holidays and making the library look nice. 
  • read books in our Book Club:
    • We read "The Hate U Give" by Angie Thomas in September-October, 2019.
    • We read "I'm Not Your Perfect Mexican Daughter" by Erika Sanchez in Dec, 2019- Jan, 2020.
    • We read "It's Kind of a Funny Story" by Ned Vizzini in Feb-March, 2020. 
    • During the school closure, we read "Delirium" by Lauren Oliver in April-May, 2020.
    • We are currently reading "Parable of the Sower" by Octavia Butler (September-October, 2020)
  • plan reading-related events and activities for the Ortho community (for example, we gave out free books to families at Back to School Night). 
  • go on field trips to local elementary schools to read to little kids (we went to 10th Street Elementary on March 6th, 2020 and we had a blast!).
  • play educational games like Boggle, Scrabble, Balderdash, Set and Blokus.
 
Why should I join?

  • You get to talk about books and reading!
