Coffee Break

The only thing better than reading a good book is reading a good book and then talking about it with fellow book lovers. Every month we read a preselected book and then meet to discuss it. The Adult Services Librarian guides the discussion, but attendees are encouraged to bring up their own desired topics for the group to talk about, and we like to keep it loose and let the conversation flow naturally.

The book club reads primarily fiction titles, but we change things up with a non-fiction title from time to time.
