A new book club for homeschoolers ages 12 to 16! This is a chance to socialize with other readers and practice respecting opinions while discussing a variety of topics. We will be reading "The Goblin Wood" by Hilari Bell. Makenna is forced to flee her village the day her mother is murdered. In the wilds of the forest, she forms an unexpected alliance. Leading an army of clever goblins, Makenna defends their home from a shared enemy; humans. The Hierarchy believe Makenna is their ultimate threat - so they sent a dishonored knight named Tobin into goblin territory to entrap her. But the wood is not what Tobin expects and soon he finds his loyalties tested. The battle for the Goblin Wood begins. Registration begins at the Information Desk on November 4th at 9:00 am.

Join us as we discuss this month's book: "Escape from Mr. Lemoncello's Library" by Chris Grabenstein. Kyle Keeley is the class clown, popular with most kids, (if not the teachers), and an ardent fan of all games: board games, word games, and particularly video games. His hero, Luigi Lemoncello, the most notorious and creative gamemaker in the world, just so happens to be the genius behind the building of the new town library. Lucky Kyle wins a coveted spot to be one of the first 12 kids in the library for an overnight of fun, food, and lots and lots of games. But when morning comes, the doors remain locked. Kyle and the other winners must solve every clue and every secret puzzle to find the hidden escape route. And the stakes are very high. Registration begins November 7th at the Information Desk.
