The Book Club at Ortho

What is the Book Club at Ortho?
Book Club
Every 1-2 months, the students choose a new book for the Book Club. Students decide how many chapters to read and then meet each week to discuss the book. 
When does the Book Club meet? 
Each time a new book is chosen, different students are in the Book Club (and many of the same students!). The students vote on a day of the week and a time of day (before school or after school). So, for each book, the meeting time is different. Generally though, the Book Club meets Mondays at Lunch in the Library.
How can I join the Book Club?
Look for updates on Schoology, on Instagram (@OrthoLibrary or the Ortho Book Club = @orthobookclub) or on the website. Or you can just come and talk to Mx. Hollis, your librarian!
