New librarian brings Book Club to SHS

Are you one of those people who loves to read books and has never had a place to discuss them? Well, Book Club is here to save the day.

Book Club was created at the junior high school six years ago by Ms. Gwenn Davis, SHS librarian. It only started with 15 students and quickly grew to about 90.

Davis replaced Mr. Bill Lowenburg as the high school librarian this year.  She decided to bring the Book Club to the high school for the older students to enjoy.

“ I wanted to create a place for students who love reading and give them the ability to discuss their thoughts and opinions on the books that they were reading in the club,” said Davis.

Four books were voted for the first this year’s first reading.  Then they finalized one novel: The Hate You Give, by Angie Thomas. The members will read one book per semester.

Book Club meets once a week on Friday in the library’s conference room over the four lunch periods.
