The library offers book clubs for a variety of ages and interests.
Adult Book Discussions
All adults are welcome to attend our adult book discussions. Copies of the books are available in the Adult Services department prior to each club meeting.
The General Book Club discusses titles selected from nonfiction and literary fiction. Meetings are held the second Monday of each month at 7:00 p.m.
Crime Fiction Book Club chooses suspenseful novels with a focus on criminality. As such, some titles have sensitive content. Meetings are held on the third Monday of every month at 2:00 p.m. and the following Tuesday at 7:00 p.m. This book club does not meet in the months of December, January, and February.
Off the Beaten Path Book Club focuses on the strange, the weird, and the uncanny–stories that seem a bit askew, and look at the world from unusual perspectives. We invite you to leave your usual books behind and dare to read differently. Meetings are held on the second Tuesday of each month at 7:00 p.m.

Copies of the books for teen and tween book discussions are available outside the Teen Room and in the Youth Services prior to each club meeting.
