Book clubs combat winter blahs!

. October 11, 2012.

When you’re an active teenager or pre-teen, curling up with a good book can lose its appeal after a few days.  Curling up with a good book in the company of friends your own age is another thing altogether.  Maybe that’s the reason for the popularity of two book clubs meeting monthly at the Findlay-Hancock County Public Library.

Hogwarts stalwarts can enjoy discussing all things Potter as members of the Harry Potter Book Club, meeting the third Wednesday of each month from 5:30-6:30pm. in the children’s program room.  Potter fans, ages nine to 18, are invited to attend and compare notes with other J.K. Rowling fans.  No charge to join. . . just bring your enthusiasm and ideas.

For those who enjoy books on various topics, The Teen Book Club meets the second Tuesday of each month from 5:30-6:30pm, also in the children’s program room.  Students in grades nine to 12 are invited to attend and discuss the latest teen best sellers, as well as their own favorite authors and topics. 

There’s no time like winter to brush up on your academic skills.  Stay in the warmth of your own room and expand your knowledge of math and science, along with SAT and ACT preparation.  Students from elementary school through college can receive free training and review on a number of subjects through the Findlay-Hancock County Library’s website.  Go to, click on “Teens”, then “Teen Services” to the link for the Learning Express Library.  Need a little help in the technology department?  Learning Express also provides training in Microsoft Office and other popular computer applications.
