The Ojai Valley School Upper Campus Library is pleased to introduce the formation of The Perks of Being a Book Club, a club for lovers of the written word.
Do you enjoy tales that take place in faraway lands inhabited by creatures only the wildest of imaginations can conjure up? How about stories that deal with teenage love and heartbreak? If so, The Perks of Being a Book Club is for you.
Maybe you enjoy the poetry of Lord Byron or the wit of Oscar Wilde. Yeah? The Perks of Being a Book Club wants you as a member.
Do you like reading about the history of baseball or learning how to become a better public speaker? You do?! Then come join The Perks of Being a Book Club.
We meet every Friday in the library during Electives (2:45-3:30) and discuss what we are reading, things we might want to do as a club, eat snacks, and enjoy each other’s company.
Wait, things we might want to do as a club? Like what? I’m glad you asked!
The club recently took a trip down to Bart’s Books in downtown Ojai to pick out books for the library’s collection. Yes, it’s true; students got to be a integral part of developing the library’s collection, picking out books they think their friends and peers would enjoy. Sounds like fun, right?
Other activities the club is planning include:
- Club t-shirts because who doesn’t want an awesome club t-shirt
- More trips to buy books
- Creating custom bookmarks to help promote club book recommendations
- Watching movies based on our favorite books
- Working with the Lower Campus to create a Reading Buddy/Mentor program
- And much, MUCH more!
So if this all sounds fun to you, come join The Perks of Being a Book Club and be prepared to have fun!
