The mission of Tome Student Literacy Society is to promote multiple literacies among 4th-12th grade students across the United States through: service; collaboration; competition-based club activities; and clean, entertaining, encouraging literature.


Tome Student Literacy Society (Tome Society) is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization based in North Georgia. Tome Society provides student competitions; an annual It List of clean, entertaining, and encouraging children's and young adult literature; book club activities; curriculum materials for educators; and an annual conference for both students and educators. All activities promote self-esteem, leadership skills, strong values, and nurture critical thinking, creativity, and imagination in the digital age.

TGES Club Tome Chapter:

The TGES chapter of Club Tome will read books outside of school and meet one Tuesday each month after school from 3:00 – 4:30 to discuss our reading and do activities associated with our books. Students must be picked up in front of the School by 4:30. Students not picked up by 4:30 will be sent to our Afterschool Program.

In order to provide Club Tome Society members with physical copies of their book each month, we are requesting a $30 membership fee to help offset the cost of books and activities. This fee does not cover the total cost for each member of our club so the TGES Media Center will cover the difference.
