Book Discussion Groups

Our book club discussions are open to every interested reader-- just read the book and join the discussion. Click on the links below to find out what each club is reading. If you are interested in starting your own book club you can check out a Book Club in a Bag.

Cookbook Book Club

Do you enjoy looking at cookbooks and trying new recipes? Then join our newest book club! We’ll provide a cookbook for you to borrow, and you'll choose a recipe to make and share at our meeting (encouraged but not required). All skill levels are welcome, and we'll raffle off a copy of the book for one lucky winner to take home! See the events calendar for more information.
