B.Y.O.B. Bring Your Own Book (Club)

B.Y.O.B. (Club) is a non-traditional book club for adults. Instead of reading a predetermined title, participants meet online to share what they’re currently reading and pick up new recommended reads. Whether you can’t wait to talk up your new favorite title or just want to listen to the conversation, all are welcome to join!  Meets the 4th Thursday of each month.  Register to receive the Zoom link below.

Book Kits

Want to start your own book club?  The La Crosse Public Library is here to help with our wide selection of book discussion kits! Each kit includes 8-12 copies of the book, discussion questions, author information, and read-alikes. Kits circulate for six weeks and holds may be placed on the kits, but cannot be reserved in advance for a specific date. Questions? Contact our Circulation team: (608) 789-7167.

Are you on Goodreads? We are too! Join us there for online book discussions and staff recommendations.
