Alameda's Zeta Phi chapter of the Delta Kappa Gamma International Society for Professional Educators recently hosted teens from the Alameda Free Library's Teen Book Club last month.

President Fern Kruger introduced the facilitator, Jill Russell, a retired teacher and media specialist from Paden School. She now works with teens at the Alameda Free Library. Russell explained how the Teen Book Club works and asked four young women from the Teen Book Club to share their experiences with books they received from the club.

The teens thanked Zeta Phi members for contributing to the Teen Book Club and explained how funds supplied books that helped their club. They then asked Zeta Phi to share their favorite book genre and what they think makes a really good read. This is what they do at the Teen Book Club after reading the free books they receive.

Zeta Phi were all impressed by the young women's great insight and the vast variety of topics presented from their latest readings. Teens -- boys or girls -- with free space this summer should check out the Alameda Free Library and its Teen Book Club, and enjoy some very good reads.
