League of Literature "LOL" Book Club Begins in January

The AnHS Library's Teen Advisory Board (TAB) kicks off its LOL Book Club in January with its first novel: The Sun is Also a Star. The LOL Book Club will meet in the Library on January 16th during Titan 28 to discuss the book. Our next book titles will include The 57 Bus, All The Light We Cannot See, and Cinder. If your teen wants to participate, have them stop by the Library and see Mrs. McCoy to get a copy.
