Book Clubs

By , March 30, 2010 2:47 pm


The library supports four regular book clubs each month which includes several fiction groups at different days of the week and times of the day. We read everything from classics to new releases and everything in between. Book clubs provide a relaxed atmosphere, giving everyone the opportunity to exchange ideas, view points, and questions with other book lovers.

While offering a wide variety of book clubs sponsored by the library, we also offer support for your own book club, providing discussion materials and copies of the chosen title.

Call to find out how we can support your book discussion group.
