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 am - 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.
