Book Discussions

Book Discussion Group

The Library's Book Discussion Group is an opportunity for adults to get together once a month, from September to June, to discuss a book, which is usually a contemporary fiction or non-fiction title. Copies of the book to be discussed are available at the Information Services Desk one month before the scheduled group meeting. The program is open to all and refreshments are served.

The Book Group meets on the 2nd Thursday of each month at 1:30 p.m. and 7:30 p.m.

Discussions are led by Adult Services Librarian Paul Kibala.
