Sometimes, a good book can make the world seem a little less lonely.

Or something along those lines.

The Williamsburg Regional Library’s In BeTWEEN the Pages Book Club will be meeting virtually Tuesday at 6 p.m.

This month’s book is “The Secret Lake” by Karen Inglis. It’s a time travel mystery story about two kids, Stella and Tom, who discover a tunnel and lake that transports them 100 years into the past.

“The In BeTWEEN the Pages Tween Book Club is an important social outlet for tweens, especially in the midst of a pandemic,” said Ben Strohm, youth services director at WRL. “It is a chance for them to enjoy some unstructured, non-mandatory reading, just for fun.”

The library hosts the club once a month, and it’s designed for ages 9-12. The virtual meeting is also limited to 15 members.

“It is also a great opportunity to meet with other readers and learn how to talk about books in a comfortable and welcoming environment,” Strohm said.

Parents interested in getting their young readers involved can do so by calling 757-741-3300, extension 4, or by visiting the Youth Services desk to register and pick up a free copy of the book.

The next book club meeting will be Tuesday, Dec. 29 at 6 p.m.
