Speaking Volumes Book Club

 This dynamic book club was born in May 2006. The group typically meets the third Wednesday of each month from September through June. Each month, a member who has previously chosen a title for discussion by the group facilities the meeting that discusses that selection.

If you are interested in joining the book club, please contact library staff to arrange to have a copy of the current title brought in for you.

Library membership is not required to participate in the book club; it merely facilitates participants receiving copies of the titles.
