Two discussion groups meet monthly at the library (both sessions discussing the same book): on the first Monday evening at 6:30 pm, and the second Wednesday morning at 8 am. The group reads a variety of books, including historical fiction, contemporary fiction, classics, and non-fiction. Check our online calendar for upcoming books.
This group meets quarterly -- on the fourth Monday of January, April, July, and October -- at 7:00 pm. Books are available at the front desk one month prior to discussion.
