Book Club

The library currently has two adult book groups.  The Bookies have been meeting for over 25 years and meet the third Thursday of the month at 7 pm.   The M.A.D. About Books group is newer and meets the first Thursday of each month at 7 pm.    Both groups work from a list of books chosen by the group members.  Each member takes a turn hosting the meeting when their book choice is discussed.  Snacks are always included.  We read a variety of fiction with the occasional nonfiction title thrown in and read at least one classic novel a year.   We also play one murder mystery game a year.  Field trips related to our books are also occasionally planned.  If you are interested in joining a book group, please leave your contact info with the staff.
