Un-Book Club at OYC

Meets at Oregon Yourh Center at 110 N. Oak St.

In a regular book club, everyone reads and talks about the same book. We are doing things a little different. The Librarians will offer suggested reads but you choose what you read on the topic or genre. You can choose fiction, non-fiction, graphic novel, a short story, article, etc. Then we explore the topic or genre through discussion and hands-on activities. Lunch will be available during the club!

At the June 25th meeting, we will book talk books for the upcoming themes and talk about how the club will run.  You do not need to attend all of the meetings.

No registration. For young people ages 10-15, or going into grades 5-8. The club is a partnership with the Oregon Youth Center.
