Book Club

FOR ADULTS AGES 18+

EVERY THIRD Thursday AT 6:30 PM in the COMMUNITY ROOM

Come join your fellow community members for a lively discussion of both classic works and modern masterpieces. In addition to our discussion, we’ll have a little something extra each month, such as a craft, treat, or game that’s related to that month’s title.

Unless otherwise noted, a limited number of book club reading copies will be available for checkout from the circulation desk about a month prior to the meeting.
