Brown Bag Books

Our longest running book club. Brown Bag Books meets on the 2nd and 4th Wedneday at noon. Talk about whatever book you are currently reading. Bring your lunch and make new friends.

 

Page Turners

Our Library Book group, Pageturners, meets the last Monday of each month at 7 pm. We read from a variety of genres and have a lot of fun in our informal reading discussions. It’s easy to be a part, just request the Pageturners Book Group book from the Circulation counter and check it out. Come to our discussion, it doesn’t matter if you enjoyed the book or not, it doesn’t matter if you read all of the book, just listening and being a part of our group is entertaining and you will learn a lot.
