Book Clubs

We’re all on the same page…

Join one of our book clubs!

Book clubs are a great way for book-lovers to go beyond the pleasure of reading by joining others in a lively discussion of what they’ve read. Book clubs encourage you to read more, to read outside the genres you normally read, or simply a way to meet other lovers of books.

New members are always welcome. A staff member facilitates the group but discussion is freewheeling and member-driven. Our current book discussion groups cover a wide range of topics and cross between fiction and non-fiction books. See the listing of titles below or view our online calendar for this month’s selections. If you need help searching the catalog or placing a hold on this title please ask our staff to assist you.
