Quaran-Teen Book Chat3:00 p.m.4:00 p.m.Digital Meeting

Middle and high school students - please join us for the next Quaran-Teen Virtual Book Chat, hosted by Teen Librarian Sonja Somerville! This week we'll talk about books in general and focus some conversation and trivia time on the Lunar Chronicles series by Marissa Meyer.

We are using Kahoot for the trivia portion, so if you can bring a phone or tablet in addition to the one you are using to get on Zoom, that is awesome! If not, we can figure it out.

For Zoom meeting ID and password, please email [email protected] in advance!
