Arthur’s Readers began as a bookclub in 2020 and this year has formally transitioned into a co-curricular.

The 20 member student led Arthur’s Readers meet weekly and discuss all things reading related.  These students sure know their stuff when it comes to books and can recommend books to suit all tastes.
