The library's preteen book club is a great way to meet other people who love reading. We don't assign a book - just drop by and talk about your favorite books, or a good book you've read lately, or even something you have to read for school! If you're not sure what to read next, stop by and get some recommendations. Geared toward ages 10-12. Older teens are also welcome, and there is no signup necessary.
Join us for Kiwanis Early Risers Family Night with Noelle from Zoozort! She brings a variety of exotic animals, typically including a wallaby, fennec fox, python, and skunk! It will be educational and fun!
It is your mission to save the citizens of Panem from a terrible future. Follow the clues, escape the room, and save the world! Escape rooms are best done in groups, so bring your friends to see if you can solve the puzzles. Preteens and teens in grades 6-12 ONLY, please! RSVP on Facebook if you wish.
Our teen book club meets once a month to discuss a book we've chosen. If there's a film or television adaptation, we like to screen it; if there isn't one, we'll make a craft that's somehow related to the book.
For November, we're discussing Bridge to Terabithia by Katherine Paterson, and screening the 2007 film adaptation, which is rated PG and runs 96 minutes.
Think books are awesome? Think we are awesome? Donate today to keep the party going!
Terika, our children's librarian, read Versions of Her by local author, Andrea Lochen!
Did you know that Andrea Lochen is originally from the West Bend area? Her first two books are The Repeat Year and Imaginary Things.
Terika says, "This book has the makings of a Hallmark movie. Written by West Bend native Andrea Lochen, it is a chick lit novel about two sisters who find a mysterious hidden door in their childhood lake home and discover that can directly view their mother's younger years. Delving into her memories is fun at first, but they soon discover different truths."
