Geek Club Meetings
The Geek Club is now a self-service book club! Stop by each month and pick up a copy of the most recent selection. When you finish, leave a comment, make a meme, or post a quote from the book online at: https://suttongeekclub.wordpress.com/. Unplugged? That’s, cool too. We have a comment board in the library where you can post-it your opinions!
 
When: Whenever.
Where: Geek Club books are displayed each month in the Teen section.
Who: For people whose only exercise comes from running from commitment!
