Book Club

Old Book

The Book Club is a reader's discussion group that meets once a month from September through June. The meetings are organized and led by volunteers. 
Discussions are held on the second Thursday of the month,
5:30 p.m. at via Zoom for the time being.

One book per month is selected. Readers become acquainted with a variety of books and authors. The book club gathers to discuss the story, other books written by the featured author and to learn more about the author.

The Book Club is for adults who love to read!
This is an informal and fun gathering. New members are welcome.
If you are interested in joining, contact the library for more information, 785-364-3532 or
