Teen Outreach

Teen Book Clubs

Our teen librarian provides services to 6th grade students at Lakeview Intermediate School, and students at Kimpton Middle School and Stow-Munroe Falls High School with book talks, presentations about teen summer reading and two book clubs.

At Kimpton Middle School, the Book Club meets with the Teen Librarian monthly at school during their lunch period to discuss a book we’ve all read. Multiple copies of the book are provided by the Friends of the Library and the PTO.

At the high school, Book Club students meet with the Teen Librarian and the high school librarian in the school library media center during their lunch period, once a month. Book Club members discuss a monthly title (paperback copies are provided by the Friends of the Library and the PTO) or sometimes write reviews of advance copies of upcoming teen books obtained through the YALSA Galley Project. The last meeting of the year is usually a Field Trip visit to a book-related place like Barnes & Noble or to a large library such as the Cleveland Public Library for other special activities. We also sometimes do video interviews with YA authors or have authors visit the school during book club meetings.

Summer Reading Visits

Throughout the school year, the teen librarian is available to give book talks to any class whose teacher requests one. In May, the Teen Librarian gives Teen Summer Reading presentations to students at Lakeview Intermediate School, Kimpton Middle School, and the Stow-Munroe Falls High School. These are lively presentations including book talks, book trailers, and photos of upcoming summer programs to interest students in our library's summer services for teens. Teen Summer Reading presentations can also be given at area private schools if requested.

Teacher Requests

Local teachers of middle school and high school students can also contact the Teen Librarian to request expertly chosen materials for their classroom. Materials can be sent through delivery (Stow-Munroe Falls Schools teachers only) or held for pick up. Teachers must have a valid Stow-Munroe Falls Public Library teacher card to obtain a teacher loan. Please give at least 48 hours notice for a teacher request. Number of materials provided will depend on availability.
