Scariff Library book clubs

Scariff Public Library's morning book club is only a few months old but already they have had their first evening outing to the Ennis Book Club Festival. They read Star of the Sea in advance of the special Giant Book Club Gathering hosted by author Joseph O'Connor. It was a great night out and some members got to speak to Joseph when he signed their copies of the book. It was lovely to meet other book clubs and take part in the discussion and they will definitely be back in 2014! They meet on the second Friday of every month at 11am in the library and look forward to welcoming new members. It's a great way to meet new people too!

The teen book club in Scariff Public Library is looking forward to their special book club meeting for Teen Week on March 19th at 6pm. They will be talking about The Bell Jar by Sylvia Plath. The teens love having their own book club and are excited about their new project compiling a list of teen picks for Clare County Library. They will recommend good reads and a "teen pick" sticker will be placed on the selected novels in all branches. A great way for teens to let other teens know about a book they loved!
