Redefining the young adult section

Jen Leveck, youth services librarian, has undertaken an ambitious project in the young adult section of the library. Currently the YA section houses books for fifth grade through high school. Ms. Leveck will be separating the section further to create a new teen section, which will label books for middle school (fifth grade) on up and the YA section will be designated for high school students and older. “This change will help students and parents select book content that is more age-appropriate for their middle schoolers,” added Leveck.

Solon Retirement Village book club

Solon Public Library is working with the Solon Retirement Village by providing books for a book club for the residents. The book is read first and then followed by watching the movie of the same title. Several newer titles have been completed. The current selection is “To Kill a Mockingbird.” Anyone wishing to offer a suggestion may pass it along to Kris at 319-624-2678.

Solon Area Book Club
