People in Library

Looking to indulge in a good read and enjoy a lively conversation? We have book clubs for all ages at the library. Here's a sample of what we currently have to offer:

History by the Book

(Ages 18+) - History by the Book meets to discuss historical fiction and non-fiction books. We explore the deeper stories behind historical events and periods in the past.

Better than the Movie Book Club

(Ages 18+) - Better Than The Movie Book Club meets to discuss a new buzzy book that has an upcoming film or TV adaptation. When everyone else is talking about it, we can say we actually read the book first.

Not Your Boring Book Club

(Ages 9 - 12) - Not Your Boring Book Club is a 5-week book club that fosters the love of books and reading and provides a lively environment for 9 to 12 year-olds to gather, chat, create, and learn together.

Reading Bugs

(Ages 6 -9) -  Reading Bugs is a 4-week book club that fosters the love of books and reading and provides an engaging environment for 6-8 year old's to communicate, learn, make and play.

For more information, visit our programs & events calendar or stop by the help desk.
