Former Book Clubs
The Book to Movie Book Group was a book club that met for about an hour at 6:30 p.m. on the third Wednesday of each month. The group read a variety of titles that had recently or would soon be released as movies. The discussions were led by our library director and promised to be entertaining!
At this time, there are no further meetings planned. If you are interested in this group, please let the library staff know.
The Not Just for Kids Book Club was a reading group for adults who enjoy Young Adult and Juvenile literature. No need to hide the fact that you enjoy reading Harry Potter or Divergent! Join in with this group of like-minded adults who realize that some of the best literature is in the YA section of the library.
At this time, the group has no further meetings planned. If you are interested in this reading group, please let the library staff know, because we need more members before restarting the group.
The Nonfiction Page Turners Book Discussion Group is a book club that met for about an hour at 6:30 p.m. on the fourth Wednesday of each month. The group reads a variety of nonfiction titles. The discussions were led by our library director and promised to be interesting and thought provoking!
At this time, there are no further meetings planned for this group. Please let us know if you are interested in this or any other book group.
