Have you been missing book group? Are you looking for new opportunities for online events? The Chandler Libraries are happy to revive our book groups – now online – starting in August. Check out what we have to offer!
Book Lovers Group
Thursday, August 6 at 1:00 p.m.
For this group, read anything you want on a given topic and we'll discuss everything that the participants read. August topics are baseball, pandemic and museum.
True Crime Meetup
Wednesday, August 26 at 6:00 p.m.
Each month we'll pick a crime to research and discuss, and share our favorite books, documentaries and podcasts.
Novels at Night
Monday, August 31 at 6:30 p.m.
Invite a friend or make new ones while we discuss recent novels.
Sunset's Monday Afternoon Book Discussion and Monday Evening Book Group will resume online in September.
Some tips for our book groups:
- Book groups are offered on Zoom. (Book Lovers Group meets using WebEx.) Please register for the book group you're interested in, and you will be emailed a link. At the date and time of the book group meeting, click the link to join. If you don't yet have the Zoom app (or WebEx), you will be prompted to download it. Please allow a few extra minutes to complete the download.
- Zoom allows you to choose a screen name or use an auto-generated name. Using your real name will help us recognize you as someone who's signed up for the book group.
- When you click the link to join the meeting, you will enter a waiting room and you will see the message, "Please wait, the host will let you in soon." We'll let you in when we see your name.
- It's best to stay muted when you're not speaking, to prevent feedback caused by too many unmuted microphones. Your book group host will tell you more about what to do when you want to speak.
