Book Club

 Each year STM Library sponsors book clubs which meet after school a few times a year. The purpose is to have a good time with some good books.  These are non-academic clubs that encourage reading by giving some great books to some great kids!

Do you like great books? Do you like to have fun? Then our book clubs are for you!
