Read and Feed Book Club--BYOB

The DHS library, in conjunction with the Spartanburg County Public Library (SCPL), has begun a BYOB club. Students are encouragaed to Bring Your Own Book (BYOB) to lunch in the library on the designated days and eat pizza and dessert and tell about books they've read. SCPL Teen Services Assistant, Tara S., coordinates with Mrs. Dillard to schedule the dates and get the students to come. We have had two BYOB sessions so far, and both have had a great turnout. In November, we had 26 students (all three lunch groups) attend and share their books. In December, we had 23 students. The students have also chosen a book to read as a group. First and second lunch students chose the book Lockdown by Alexander Gordon Smith, and third lunch students chose Liar by Justine Larbalestier. They will each receive a copy of the book their lunch chose compliments of SCPL.

Here is a list of some of the books that were shared:
