We offer two Book Clubs each month. Copies of the books are available at the library circulation desk— come pick one up and join us! Books typically arrive 3-4 weeks ahead of the scheduled discussion.

New members are most welcome at any time.

Wednesday Afternoon Book Club

Our afternoon book club typically meets on the third Wednesday of each month at 1:00 pm.

Check out our list of upcoming titles we will be discussing.

Note: The title listed is the book we will discuss on the month noted next to the book title. (E.g., We will be discussing The Maid at our April meeting, so you should pick it up a couple weeks beforehand).
