Thursday Night Teen Book Chat

Love to Read?

We’ve started a Teen Book Chat!  Stop by to talk about your favorite books. Hear about what other people are reading and get an exclusive preview of new titles that are coming to the library. Registration is not required*, so feel free to drop by and bring a friend!  It’s open to anyone in grades 7-12 and meets the third Thursday of every month from 4:30-6 pm, right before the Thursday Night Book Chat for the big kids.

If you can’t make it to any of these meetings, you are more than welcome to stop by the
Teen Reference Desk to chat with the Teen Librarian about what you’re currently reading!

*While registration is not required, it is encouraged.  If you would like to sign-up, you’ll get a reminder call or e-mail the day before we meet.  You can register here.

Four: A Divergent Collection by Veronica Roth

At last weeks inaugural meeting, we discussed creating soundtracks for our favorite books.

In honor of this weeks release, Four: A Divergent Collection, here’s an sample playlist for Veronica Roth’s first book that started it all, Divergent:

  1. Chicago by Sufjan Stevens
  2. Crazy Train by Black Sabbath
  3. Peace Train by Cat Stevens (theme song for the Abnegation)
  4. We’re Going to be Friends by the White Stripes (theme song for the Amity)
  5. Two Points for Honesty by Guster (theme song for the Candor)
  6. Want you Bad by the Offspring (theme song for the Dauntless)
  7. Everybody Wants to Rule the World by Tears for Fears (theme song for the Erudite)
  8. All Kinds of Guns by Tilly and the Wall (*skip ahead to 6:25 for song)
  9. When I’m Sixty-Four by the Beatles (6 and 4-see what I did there?)
Have a suggestion for a song that should be on this playlist?  Want to share a book soundtrack of your own?  Submit your ideas to the Teen Librarian by visiting the Teen Space or contact Teen Services here!
