Book Clubs are led by the community members that attend on a regular basis; they select the monthly books in advance so everyone can read the same book title. This book club meets at 7 PM on the second Thursday of each month from September through May.


Listed below are a few reminders so everyone can enjoy the club

  • The safety of our participants and staff is our top priority, please review our Stay Safe Guidelines & Patron Conduct Policy.
  • Registration is required, space is limited. If you cannot attend, please cancel your registration.
  • All participants are encouraged to read the book, if you don't like the style, at least read the first few chapters and the final chapter so you can participate in the discussions.
