Mayville Public Library’s Teen Book Club meets on Tuesday, June 25th at 6:30.  This month’s featured book is Looking for Alaska by John Green, who also wrote The Fault in Our Stars.  Looking for Alaska is fiction but is based on John Green’s own experiences attending boarding school.  If you’re up for reading and talking about a book that many people consider a good one, and if you’ve been wondering what a Teen Book Club at Mayville Public Library is like, join us!  You are welcome!  This discussion is hosted by the Friends of Mayville Public LIbrary.
