Books and Bagels Goes Virtual!

If you are interested in joining Books & Bagels, fill out this form to get reminder emails and the Zoom link for meetings.

Books and Bagels is a joint project between Ankeny High School, Ankeny Centennial, and Kirkendall Public Library. For the 2021-22 school year, we will be meeting in person. We will meet the last Friday of each month from 7:45-8:15am in the ACHS Media Center.

During our meetings, students visit with others about the books they are reading. We do not require everyone to read the same book. Rather, we share with each other and help build each other’s TBR list! Teagan, the YA Librarian from Kirkendall Public Library will bring bagels for us to share together while we discuss books.

GoodReads: A fabulous app to track what you’ve read and what you want to read! Follow friends to see what they’re reading, read reviews, and join the reading challenge!
