Upcoming Programs & Events
Book on Tap (Ages 21+)

The 3rd Thursday of Every Month

Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, all meetings will be held virtually until further notice.

Books on Tap isn't your typical book club. Join us as we read our way through the latest and greatest in Fantasy, Science Fiction, YA, and more – all while enjoying appetizers and drinks at bars or restaurants here in New Baltimore! 

Books are available for pick-up at MacDonald Public Library one month prior to the meeting date. Ages 21 and up are welcome. Our group meets on the 3rd Thursday of every month at 7:30 p.m. Our location changes each time we meet so that we can experience all that our beautiful community has to offer. An appetizer to share will be provided.

No registration is required.

Discussion Date: April 16th, 2021 at 7:30 p.m.

Do you want to meet interesting people? Believe that some books just need to be discussed? Want to read interesting books you might otherwise not read?

Join us on the following Tuesday mornings from 10:30 a.m. - 12 p.m. because sometimes it's just fun to chat about a book. Copies of the book selections will be available for checkout at the library for several weeks prior to the discussion.

No registration is required for any of our book clubs.
