Teen Book Club  -     Call the library if interested  (715-684-3813) and we will get you a free copy of the next book (ask for Hope;  Hope Melander is the facilitator).    Come give us your ideas!         This group has met regularly before on the last Tuesday of each month at 3:45 for about 45 minutes, but day and time are up for negotiation.  B-W Bus #9 stops right at the library at 3:35.   Or occasional meetings can happen just once or twice a year for busy students.

    


Afternoon Book Club:  (ages 18 and over) -  Meets last Tuesday of each month at 1:00pm.

Books chosen are slightly older popular titles so that we can order multiple copies from the MORE system and no book purchase is necessary to participate.                                 

 Hot Dogs and Hamburgers: Unlocking life's potential by inspiring literacy at any age, Rob Shindler

 

"In this heartwarming story, author Rob Shindler tells how he offered his time, unflagging energy, and unconventional teaching techniques to help a boy with serious learning differences and adults suffering from low literacy levels. A father who wanted to help his son with his reading deficiencies, Rob discovered the way to that goal was through volunteering at the Literacy Center of Chicago. There, he learned firsthand how ridiculous the common misconceptions are about learning disabilities and adult illiteracy. The assortment of students he taught were ambitious people who were eloquent, driven, clever, and so funny they made him laugh out loud. Here, Rob shares his students' pain and humiliations, frustrations and hopes. Hot Dogs & Hamburgers demonstrates that literacy issues reside in all neighborhoods and that its victims are committed to finding dignity and life's possibilities through learning to read. Rob's teaching experiences are so motivating and rewarding that once you've read his story, you're likely to begin your own journey as a literacy tutor." --Back cover.
