What

The Library Book Club meets 7 P.M. on the fourth Monday of each month (except December). We have a round table discussion sharing views and insights for the first 30 minutes or so. Afterwards, members suggest and discuss a title for the next month. A show of hands or bribery seals the deal. Any genre is possible as long as there’s sufficient copies available for checkout and the title hasn’t been read by most. The helpful library staff orders copies and you’re notified when yours is ready for pickup. So, no purchases necessary!

Why join? You’ll meet fun people; read something you might not think of trying; do a book a month; be exposed to another’s perspective; and, almost always, engage in some friendly banter and chit-chat. We guarantee book discussions have never resulted in an ER visit. There’s nothing intimidating nor stuffy about the meeting. Everyone's welcome. So come try us out and see for yourself!

Take a look at past titles to see what we've been reading.
