Ages: 12 – 16 years old

A book club for homeschoolers ages 12 to 16! This is a chance to socialize with other readers and practice respecting opinions while discussing a variety of topics. We will be reading "The Wednesday Wars" by Gary D. Schmidt. Meet Holling Hoodhood, a seventh-grader at Camillo Junior High, who must spend Wednesday afternoons with his teacher, Mrs. Baker, while the rest of the class has religious instruction. Mrs. Baker doesn’t like Holling—he’s sure of it. Why else would she make him read the plays of William Shakespeare outside class? But everyone has bigger things to worry about, like Vietnam. His father wants Holling and his sister to be on their best behavior: the success of his business depends on it. But how can Holling stay out of trouble when he has so much to contend with? A bully demanding cream puffs; angry rats; and a baseball hero signing autographs the very same night Holling has to appear in a play in yellow tights! As fate sneaks up on him again and again, Holling finds Motivation—the Big M—in the most unexpected places and musters up the courage to embrace his destiny, in spite of himself. Registration begins at the Information Desk on January 6th at 9:00 am. For more information, please contact Alyssa Bullock at 419-874-3135 x127 or This email address is being protected from spambots.

Join us as we talk about this month's book: "Stella by Starlight" by Sharon M. Draper and do activities based on what we've read. Stella lives in the segregated South; in Bumblebee, North Carolina, to be exact about it. Some stores she can go into. Some stores she can't. Some folks are right pleasant. Others are a lot less so. To Stella, it sort of evens out, and heck, the Klan hasn't bothered them for years. But one late night, later than she should ever be up, much less wandering around outside, Stella and her little brother see something they're never supposed to see, something that is the first flicker of change to come, unwelcome change by any stretch of the imagination. As Stella's community - her world - is upended, she decides to fight fire with fire. And she learns that ashes don't necessarily signify an end. Refreshments will be served. Registration begins January 9th at the Information Desk.

Join us for a fun discussion about this month’s book selection. We will be discussing "The Friendship War" by Andrew Clements. Grace and Ellie have been best friends since second grade. Ellie's always right in the center of everything--and Grace is usually happy to be Ellie's sidekick. But what happens when everything changes? This time it's Grace who suddenly has everyone's attention when she accidentally starts a new fad at school. A fad that has first her class, then her grade, and then the entire school collecting and trading and even fighting over . . . buttons?! A fad that might get her in major trouble and could even be the end of Grace and Ellie's friendship. Because Ellie's not used to being one-upped by anybody. There's only one thing for Grace to do. With the help of Hank, the biggest button collector in the 6th grade, she'll have to figure out a way to end the fad once and for all. But once a fad starts, can it be stopped? Registration begins at the Information Desk on January 13th at 9:00 am. For more information, please contact Alyssa Bullock at 419-874-3135 x127 or This email address is being protected from spambots.
