Message in the Margins Teen Book Club

Love books? Have a favorite sentence, scene, or character and want everyone to know?

Join the club that encourages writing in the margins, underlining, and leaving notes. We provide a special collection of books, graphic novels, and manga to use -- you provide the conversation.

How it works:

  1. Pick out any book from our Message collection (available at high school visits and during Teen Zone hours).
  2. Check the book out from Teen Zone staff (no library card required).
  3. Leave behind messages, sticky notes, and doodles as you read! Anything is fair game as long as you are not obstructing the text. Write a letter and leave it in between the pages. Leave a link to a playlist you made. Draw your OMG WHAT?! face on a sticky note for that super intense cliffhanger. Anything!
  4. After a month, bring the book back to the high school visit or Teen Zone desk so someone else can experience the book from your perspective!
