On the last Friday of every month, students meet in the library during their lunch for book club. They read and discuss books together during their meetings.
Recently, the library received 15 free copies of “Code Name Verity” by Elizabeth E. Wein from Rainy Day Books. Librarian and club sponsor Kathy Knop said that the first 15 people who want to read “Code Name Verity” will get a free copy.
“Code Name Verity” is a historical fiction novel about two British women in World War II. The book club usually reads realistic fiction, but Knop thinks that “Code Name Verity” will give students a different outlook on war.
“Historical fiction gives you an idea of what goes on in another time period,” Knop said. “I think it’ll give another perspective on what it’s like to be a student during a war.”
Knop also wants to help kids to reach out and try different types of books they normally wouldn’t read. She said that sometimes she and the students choose books that they wouldn’t have normally heard of. It’s also important for Knop that the kids learn from their discussions.
