The library hosts or co-sponsors a variety of book clubs for people of all reading interests. It's a great way to meet friends and enjoy an evening of book-worship or book debate. Take a look at everything we have to offer and get in touch right away! Each club has a moderator-librarian who'd be happy to get you reading and meeting up in no time.
Or if you're less of a joiner and more of an organizer, start up your own book group with our easy and convenient Book Group in a Bag service.
