I've never know any trouble than an hour's reading didn't assuage.
~ Charles de Secondat ~


Readers enjoy lively discussions and great desserts at the library.

Book Club - Reader's Group
The Book Club
is a reader's discussion group that meets once a month from
September through June. The meetings are organized and led by volunteers. 
Discussions are held on the second Thursday of the month, 6:30 p.m. at the library.

One book per month is selected. Readers become acquainted with a variety of books 
and authors. The book club gathers to discuss the story, other books written by the featured author and to learn more about the author.

The Book Club is for adults who love to read! This is an informal and fun gathering.
New members are welcome. If you are interested in joining, contact the library for more information,
