Teen/Tween Book Club

Tween/Teen Book Club Logo

The Teen/Tween Book Club at the Headquarters Branch of the Alachua County Library District has been around for over three years and has now moved to GoodReads

This virtual platform allows us to safely hear from all of our members (past and present) and to add new members from all around the district!

We love reading the best new YA fantasy and sci-fi, but also enjoy slice of life novels and great bios. We'll even throw in the occasional graphic novel for fun!

 

Check out what we're reading past, present, and future and join us for some scintillating conversation at our very own Teen/Tween Virtual Book Club
