Book Discussions

Welcome all readers! Our book discussion group is in its 20th season! Please click here for a list of all the books chosen over the years.

Multiple copies of the discussion books are available upstairs in the Adult library any time after the previous month’s discussion. The group meets at 6:30 PM in the downstairs meeting room once each month, except July. In August, there is a planning meeting to choose the titles for the next 10 months.

Light refreshments are served at each meeting. The group is coordinated, moderated, and inspired by local author and editor, Melissa Hayes. Group members lead individual discussions.
