Announcing: A Book Club!

Do you enjoy talking about a good book as much as you enjoy reading it?

Then we have good news for you!


Beginning Wednesday, March 7 the library will begin hosting a discussion group every first Monday from 12:00 - 1:00 p.m.

Book discussion groups are a great way for book-lovers to share their enjoyment of reading and the pleasure of each other's company. 

Book discussion groups can encourage you to read more, to read outside your normal genre, and introduce you to new friends.

Members will choose their own books to there is no "reading list".  We will simply discuss books we have enjoyed (or not enjoyed), share our experiences and observations, and come away with a great list of books to read. 

Bring your brown bag lunch and let's talk books!

Join us Wednesday, March 7 at 12:00 noon.

Contact the Library for more informaton.
