Book Clubs

Adult Book Club

The library's Adult Book Club focuses on contemporary literary fiction, although non-fiction and classic works are read as well. All titles are selected by the members of the Book Club.

Meetings are held on the second Monday of each month from 6:45 - 7:45 PM in the library's Community Room. If the second Monday falls on a day when the library is closed for a holiday, there will be no book club meeting. There is no cost to participate, and new members are encouraged to join at any time. Group members are expected to have read the month's book before attending discussion sessions, but first-time attendees are always welcome to drop in. See the book club's past reading selections.
