The purpose of the VHS Book Club is to raise interest and engage students in literature and literacy, and contribute to the reading culture at Valley High School. Book Club members collaborate with each other about literature, participate in activities to bring technology together with literacy, promote reading on campus, and engage in school/community service. Book Club activities will be sustained through fund-raising.
