Reading Programs and Book Groups

Books are even better when you can share them with a friend.

Each of our libraries offers monthly book discussion groups where you can meet with other readers, talk about themes and issues in some notable titles, and get to learn and talk about the story behind the story.

Some locations also offer unique reading programs on an ongoing basis or from time to time.

For more information, contact your local library or check out our calendar for upcoming dates and times.
