RAB Middles book club will meet the 3rd Monday of each month at 6 pm.
RAB announces a Just For Us Middle Grade reading group (~8 yrs to 12 yrs), aka The RAB Middles! RAB employee and former Youth Services Librarian, Kathleen, will lead the reading group and add a dimension of community by reading and discussing great new reading choices for middle grade readers. Possibilities are endless! Our first participants will help design a reading group that works for middle grade readers. From there on in books will hopefully be chosen by our regular readers! Currently we are meeting through Zoom media AND at the shop. You need not attend every meeting to participate. Please know that spoilers and endings to our reads are discussed!
