Book Club members are responsible for reading one book each semester. All books are previewed and selected by the Library Media Specialist. Although student input is encouraged, the Media Specialist has final say on book selections. During the meetings, the Media Specialist provides initial questions and directs and guides the discussion as needed. It is expected, however, that discussions are primarily student led.
Membership in Book Club is open to all Cairo High School students and faculty. New members can join throughout the year by contacting the Media Specialist.
