Book Clubs

All book clubs are free and open to any adult. You may pick and choose which books and meetings you attend, read what you like and come when you can! The Bookmarkers Book Club regularly meets on the second Tuesday of each month and the Thursday Evening Book Club meets on the 3rd Thursday of the month.

A limited number of copies of each book are available at the Circulation Desk for book club participants. All the book links on this page take you to goodreads.com for summaries and reviews of each title.
