Teen Book Club & Chat on GoodReads

Teen-GoodReads

Hey Teens in grades 6-12! Join us for a digital book club starting Monday, May 18. All you need to do is create a free GoodReads account at goodreads.com and join the Orland Park Public Library Online Book Club & Chat group. In this group you’ll find a special spot for Teens to discuss our current read. Stop by any time! Yes we mean anytime! Today. Tomorrow. Two weeks from now. Anytime! When you stop by, let us know what you think of the book, add in your own questions, discuss your favorite or least favorite parts with others, and more. Our first book is going to be “The Belles” by Dhonielle Clayton. You can check it out from home on Hoopla in eBook and eAudiobook versions. See you at Teen Book Club!
