NWS Book Clubs

Northwest School students and faculty read together! This year the Founders Library staff supports faculty, upper school, and middle school book clubs. The faculty meet about once a month and the students meet as Interest Groups. Members of each group choose their books based on recommendations from the library staff—and we eat well at all of our meetings.
