The Library offers two traditional book clubs for our readers who like their books accompanied with robust discussion of themes, character development, and critique. If that sounds like you, then you belong in one of our traditional book clubs! New participants are always encouraged and welcome -- just read the book for that month and drop in on the meeting. Join one or all, it’s all good stuff.
Additionally, in honor of the centenary of the United States' entrance in World War I, we are offering a special book group focused on themes from that period. This book group is part of a statewide book discussion series. See more information below!
