Our Thursday Evening Book Discussion Group has made their reading list and checked it twice!  Here’s the scoop on what the Evening Book Group has chosen to read this year.  As always, their choices cover an interesting and wide range of reading material.  This book discussion group meets the second Thursday of each month at 7 PM in our cozy Hunt Room. Everyone is welcome to join, or you can “read along” on your own if you can’t make it to the meetings.  Most of these books are also available as audio-books or downloadable eBooks, so you have several options for enjoying these titles.  Please call the Information Desk at 624-6550 at ext. 3320 for more information.  The sign-ups and discussion books are kept at the circulation desk of the main library.

Lastly, to find out more about upcoming book club meetings, check out the scheduled readings and discussion dates on our new Book Discussions page. Or click on the link for “Book Discussions” under “Find” in the Site Navigation menu.
