Noble Bookworms – Free Choice

November 2017 was a special month for the Noble Bookworms. It marked our one year anniversary as an official book club! We celebrated by having a free month – staff could choose to read any children’s or teen title they wanted. With such a wide open field of choices, many genres, stories, and characters were represented. Check out the list below!
