About Cafe Book

Teens at area schools eat lunch in the school library and talk about the latest and hottest books published for teenagers. After reading their choices from selected titles, the teens share their thoughts with each other. The ultimate goal is to produce a booklist of each school's Top Picks.

Café Book is supported by a generous donation from the Carver family in memory of their mother Ruth---middle school librarian, literacy advocate, and lover of reading.

If you are interested in starting a Cafe Book program in your school, please visit our wiki or email bpurdy@crrl.org for more information.
