Book Groups

Book discussion groups gather at our locations on a regular basis. They meet in compliance with Library meeting room policies, unless otherwise noted.

We support Book Groups in all Library locations and out in the community. We have 300+ book bags available for any book group. Book bags usually contain ten copies of the same book.
