Teen Book Club & Chat on GoodReads


Hey Teens in grades 6-12! Join us for a digital book club. 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. You can check out a copy of our current read in physical form from the library or you can check out a digital copy from the library’s Ebooks & Digital Services collections . See you at Teen Book Club!
