Book Groups

We offer several venues for discussing the books that we love so much. In addition, we regularly partner with local organizations for community wide reading programs.

Want to join a book group?

All of our Book Discussion Groups are free, open to the public, and always welcome guests and new members!


Book group selections are available for checkout at the library, through interlibrary loan and area libraries with whom this library has reciprocal borrowing. Be sure to also check out availability through OverDrive and Hoopla!
