Literary Club: Students from all grade levels who love books are welcome to be a part of the Lourdes Academy Literary Club. Each month members choose a book to read on their own time and then meet the following month to discuss the book. The meetings are informally held in Mrs. Pollack's room during lunch. Members discuss favorite characters and passages and any other memorable parts from the book. Book picks vary from classics to modern fiction and range from young adult to adult level readings. Students are welcome to join any of the meetings throughout the year and are encouraged to try reading genres that they normally would not. This is a relaxed and fun club for all students.
"Books are the quietest and most constant of friends; they are the most accessible and wisest of counselors, and the most patient of teachers." ~Charles W. Eliot
