The Junior Friends created a monthly book club, Book Buds, in August 2018 for members. This is a club for youth who love the library, enjoy reading, and would like an opportunity to talk about good books (and other stuff!) with like-minded kids! As of 2020, Book Buds grew and now welcomes any child/young adult who is interested! There are 3 different clubs – Book Buds Teen for 6th graders and up, Book Buds Tween for 4th-6th graders, and Book Buds Jr. for children aged 6-8. Book Buds meet once per month. Members bring a book they have recently read or are currently reading to share with the group. Club members share why these titles are recommended(or not recommended). In the past, book reviews for recommended books were added to the RMS Media Center website for students seeking peer recommendations. Club members enjoy sharing their book choices and helping other kids learn about books they want to read! Although it is subject to change, the Teen club meets the first Friday of a month at 4 p.m, the Tween club meets the first Saturday of the month at 10 a.m, and Book Buds Jr. meets the first Saturday of a month at 11 a.m. Book Buds Jr. requires a parent attend with their child. Registration is required via the Plumb Library Event Calendar. Any details specific to the monthly meeting will be noted on the event calendar post. Snacks are served and lively discussion occurs!
