A new book club kick-off party for Tweens (ages 8-11) will be held 3:30-5:30 p.m. Tuesday at the Chickasaw Regional (Public) Library System (CRLS). Youth Services coordinator Shawn Brown will host the event with refreshments, games and the introduction of this year's books.

"This age group tends not to read as often as others, so we are excited to introduce a book club that will cater to their interests," Brown says.

Tweens may check out the first book, The Sea of Monsters by Rick Riordan.

Other books selected for the teen book club this year include Ella Enchanted by Gail Carson Levine and The Indian in the Cupboard by Lynn Reid Banks.

"We are excited to introduce some interesting books to the group," Brown says. "This is a great way to get kids enthusiastic about reading and coming to the library."

To register or to ask questions, call (580) 223-3164 or (888) 520-8103. CRLS is located at 601 Railway Express in Ardmore.
