Guys Read Book Club – Beginning in April

Boys + Books = Amazing ReadersGuys Read book club logo

The Hesston Public Library and Hesston Middle School Library are partnering to begin a new library program called “Guys Read.”

“Guys Read” is a monthly book discussion group open to guys in grades 5-8 and young professionals. The program is developed to help boys become self-motivated, lifelong readers by helping them find books they want to read and introducing the participants to male reading role models from around the community.

  • “Guys Read” book discussions will be held on the last Monday each month from 7:00-8:00 in the Community Room at Hesston Public Library.
  • The program is free and open to boys in grades 5-8.
  •  The first two discussion titles will be Alcatraz versus the Evil Librarians by Brandon Sanderson in April and Ender’s Game by Orson Scott Card in May.
  • The June read is My Side of the Mountain by Jean Craighead George

The Hesston Public Library received a $250 grant from the State Library of Kansas to purchase book club kits for the program which includes multiple copies of titles selected to appeal to guys, discussion guides for leaders/mentors and other book-related material.

For more information, or if you are interested in becoming and leader/mentor contact Emily  at the Hesston Public Library, 620-327-4666 or email hplnotifications@gmail.com.
