Kootenay Teen Book Club

We are continuing the Kootenay Teen Book Club September 2021 – April 2022. We have made a few changes this year.

  • The meetings will be on the last Tuesday of each month at 5:30-7 Pacific time, 6:30-8 Mtn time. We moved it a little earlier based on feedback.
  • We are going to do registration through zoom. You can share this link widely as it just goes to the registration page – it is not the link to the zoom event.


  • The books we have chosen will hopefully be more consistently for a younger teen (ages 11-14).
  • We are trying to engage those who read the book but don’t want to be on zoom, by including a handout with the book. The handout will have discussion questions and a list of read alikes.
  • Each month we will offer an idea for a take home bookish craft kit – this is a supplemental option if your library wants to engage with the non-zoomers.
  • Each month we will have a Fan Art contest based on the book as another way to engage with non-zoomers. Participants can draw their favourite characters or write a fan art story or poem. We will have a draw for a prize each month.
  • To access posters, social media posts, downloadables, go the KLF website. All information about KTBC will be there each month from now on.
