Library Lands ‘Great Stories’ Grant for Teen Book Discussions

New Castle-Henry County Pubic Library was recently named as a winner of a Great Stories CLUB grant. The Great Stories CLUB is a book club grant program organized by the American Library Association, with a grant from Oprah’s Angel Network, to provide young adults with the opportunity to discuss books relevant to the challenges in their lives.
The library will partner with the Henry County Youth Center to offer book clubs to troubled teens. The library will receive eleven sets of three books to provide to members of the book club, along with online resources to plan and implement the program. Book selections, theme and program support materials are developed by YALSA’s Outreach to Young Adults with Special Needs Committee. The theme for the Great Stories CLUB is teens facing challenges.
