This tween book club provides a friendly space for kids from ages 9-12 to meet and discuss books in a small group of peers. It typically meets on the last Tuesday of each month, and currently meets via Zoom. Each month, members discuss that month’s pick and choose the next month’s book.

New members are always welcome, and there is no commitment to attend every meeting. Registration is required each month, limited to 15 members, and includes a free copy of that month’s book. Check the event calendar at for dates; for more information, call the Youth Services desk at 757.741.3300, option 4.

April’s book is The Wizards of Once by Cressida Cowell.
