Tween Book Club

We are adding a new Zoom book club for tweens! The best part? Tweens who register will receive a free copy of each month’s book.

Tween Book Club

Our new Tween Book Club is for ages 8 – 14 only and will meet via Zoom on the second Friday of each month at 4 pm.

Registration is required to receive the link to join the Zoom meeting. Register on our website to reserve your free copy of each month’s selection while supplies last! Books can be picked up at our Newport Branch and are yours to keep.

If you would like to be a part of the club but have already read the book, own a copy or wish to check one out instead, you are welcome to do so. Contact Jessi Holloway at to register this way.

Pie in the Sky by Remy Lai

When Jingwen and his family move to a new country, he feels like he’s landed on Mars. To distract himself from the loneliness, Jingwen daydreams about making all the cakes on the menu of Pie in the Sky. The only problem is his mother has laid down one major rule: the brothers are not to use the oven while she’s at work. As Jingwen and Yanghao bake elaborate cakes, they’ll have to cook up elaborate excuses to keep the cake making a secret from Mama.
