Teens at area schools meet 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 Teen Picks" for that year.
Held at 15 middle schools in Spotsylvania and Stafford counties and the City of Fredericksburg, Café Book is a partnership between the public and school libraries to encourage and support teens who love to read. Not only are they enjoying great books with like-minded students, but they are also learning critical literary evaluation skills.
