Village Library Book Clubs
VILLAGE LIBRARY volunteers host monthly book discussions for 3 book clubs. Since March 2020, all monthly book club discussions continued to meet, but online, via a Professional Zoom Account established for the Village Library. In May 2021 the first "Post COVID-19 Reopening" book club meeting was joyfully held in person at our Village Library. Hopefully the others will follow suit soon.
Each book club meets in the evening on 3 different nights of each month:
Members of each book club nominate and vote for that club's annual reading selections. Our Voting Process is followed by Book Winners being announced in December.
Current year book lists are available on a printed brochure at the library's front desk. The brochure is also available to download/print from this webspace by clicking below on the brochure title which appears under the "Documents" heading.
We are pleased to welcome residents as new members of any of the VILLAGE LIBRARY BOOK CLUBS. Even if you have not had a chance to read the book, you might enjoy hearing what the book club members have to say about their experience reading it. Most of our meetings include some good laughs, and It can be so interesting how differently others can interpret the same words in the same book you both just read!
Book Club discussions can broaden your perspective as well as be enjoyable/educational experience.
