The book discussion group meets the fourth Thursday of the month from 6:30 – 7:30pm at the library, outside if possible. Books are available at the front desk about a month before the meeting where we will discuss them. All are welcome. This is a great way to get to know your neighbors. If you have questions, contact Julie at email@example.com. You can also follow us on Goodreads.
