Alliance Public Library Hosts Adventure Book Club for Students

The Adventure Book Club is starting up again at the Alliance Public Library, where students do not just read about adventure, they experience it. Students in fourth-eighth grade are invited to the first adventure on Friday, September 6 from 2:30-4:00 p.m. in the community rooms. They will participate in a scavenger hunt that will reveal the first book. The books will be available to check out from the library, as well as on Overdrive as an audiobook.

The club will meet on the first Friday of each month from 2:30-4:00 p.m. until December; in January, the club will meet on the second Friday of the month, due to school schedules. During the first meeting, participants will suggest books for future months. Each book will have an activity to go with it – past activities have included acting out survival scenarios, spy training, breakout boxes and live-action board games. This year, we will be traveling around the universe to experience a variety of cultures as well as fantasy and sci-fi.

For more information, please contact Elaine Connelly Bleisch, the Children and Youth Services Librarian, at 762-1387.
