The Clark Jr. High library is packed on Thursday mornings as nearly 30 students are there engaged in lively conversations while they enjoy a breakfast of muffins and juice. But they aren’t talking about drama with their friends or the latest Vine posted on Twitter.
These kids are there discussing the novel they are reading as part of the school’s newly created book club.
“I got the idea for a book club and ran it by the principals,” librarian Kim Campbell said. “They were very supportive, and we hoped the idea would take off. The first week we had 12 show up, but since then that number has more than doubled. I have been pleasantly surprised.”
According to Campbell, the library is already busy in the morning with kids on the computer or playing chess.
