Book Clubs


Bucket List Book Club: Young At Heart
Ages 18 and up
The last Tuesday of each month   6:30 - 7:45 pm

Join us for monthly meetings to discuss one of ten books pulled from a compilation of lists heralding books that should be on every reader's Bucket List. This year's theme is
Young At Heart and we will delve into a list Children's Literature.

It seems everyone, including librarians, have a list of books they want to read during their lifetime but simply don't get to. This year it is our hope to give you an opportunity to read some of those must read pieces of Children's Literature and then discuss them with other readers.  All of the books are available in our TRAC system and many are available to download through several e-book providers (Overdrive and 3M Cloud).  We will also have some copies available at the check out desk. Just ask a librarian.
 

Join us every month or simply for the books that interest you.  Come with the book read and a desire to learn and share. And of course we will provide snacks, because every good book club has treats and tea.
