Book Clubs at the Library
The library has three book clubs that meet regularly. Anyone who would like to attend a book club is welcome at any book club meeting. To ensure that enough copies of the selected book for each month are available for those attending, we order copies of the book through interlibrary loan.
If you would like to be added to the list of patrons who would like the book, please call the library at least 3 weeks before the book club meeting, or click the cover of the book below to go to the online catalog entry. Once you are there, you can log in and place the book on hold.
A reading group for anyone wanting to attend a daytime book club. This book club sets its sights on hot and popular books and engage in lively discussions. Bemused Bibliophiles meets at 1 p.m. the first Wednesday of each month.
This is a book club for those who are interested in books with a little twist of the unusual in them. We may run across zombies or witches or vampires, or we may just read about things that hint that something is just a little beyond what might be expected. Get a little taste of the paranormal when you join this book club, which meets at 7 p.m. the second Monday of each month. Occasionally a holiday or scheduling conflict will occur and it will meet on the first Monday of the month.
Joyful Page Turners is the library’s original book club, and has been meeting regularly since May 2000. This is a general-interest book club, and the books read range from general fiction to classics to non-fiction. Members of the club choose the books that will be read and take turns leading the discussions. This club generally meets at 6:45 p.m. the fourth Thursday of the month, except November because of Thanksgiving. In November the club meets on the third Thursday of the month. The club does not meet in June, July or December.
