Students and sponsors select and read books by prominent Spanish language writers. The librarian procures digital or paper copies of the books for the students and within 3 to 4 weeks a Book Club meeting is convened so that members and co-sponsors discuss the current book and then choose another book for the following month. Books can be read and discussed in both Spanish and English during the book club meetings.
