Book Clubs and Discussion Groups

Summer Reading Road Trip @ the Library

Between June 16 - August 3, travel down familiar roads and roads not travelled for this year's adult summer reading program. Pick up your reading roadmap at any three library locations and choose seven of ten different routes to fill out your itinerary. After you've travelled down seven roads, fill out your reading roadmap to be entered into a drawing for either a Kindle Paperwhite or an Amazon Gift Card. Three prizes will be awarded. Please, only three entries per person. 

Chapters Book Club

Chapters is the long-standing book discussion group at the Library. Books are selected for the whole year, and multiple copies of each title are available at all three locations. There are two different sessions for each book, and usually a sweet treat.  Discussion guides are available below.

Summer Chapters

Lunch hour discussions will be held Tuesday, June 24 and Aug 5 at noon in the Auditorium at Main. Bring your lunch and we'll provide dessert and beverages.
