Next Book Group meeting is Tuesday December 23
There is no specific book for the month of December. Instead, we will each share a book of our own choosing with the group. Join us for a cup of cocoa and share a favorite book, or one you are currently reading - whatever you'd like. Book Group meets on Tuesday December 23rd at 6 pm.

Why join a Book Discussion Group?
A Book Discussion Group offers individuals an opportunity to read and share ideas and opinions of books in a friendly, relaxed environment. It encourages participants to read different types of books that they might otherwise overlook, and it gives everyone a chance to enjoy talking about the books that are read.  Please consider joining our group and enjoy the lively exchange of ideas.
          
        

What to Read
Do you have a favorite author, but you've read everything they've put out? Are there certain subjects you enjoy reading about, but aren't sure where to go next? Stop by and check out our "What to Read" binder, where we have hundreds of suggestions based on author read-alikes, awards, genres, and subjects. From circus booklists to culinary mysteries, you will be sure to find something new and interesting.

Food for Fines

During the month of December, we will accept food donations for local food pantries as payment of overdue fines for late books or movies!

If you owe the library money, bring undamaged, unexpired non-perishable boxed or canned food items to the library and your fines will disappear!  And you will help the community!  What a deal! One can (or other item) = $1 off your fine.
