Teen Book League

About

At the Kingsport Public Library Teen Book League, Teens, grades 6th-12th, discuss the Volunteer State Book Award Nominees throughout the Fall and Winter. In the Spring we vote for our favorites in each category and help select a state-wide book list of Tennessee teens’ favorites! Meetings are held every other Thursday at 4:00 pm in the library’s auditorium. New members are always welcome and snacks are provided! We hope you’ll join us at our next meeting.
