My First Book Club

My First Book Club meets monthly with Ms. Eileen in the Lab on the Main Floor. This group is designed for Preschool - Grade 1, perfect for "graduates of Storytime" who are ready to engage with a picture book in a new way. Each month includes a child-sized book discussion and craft activity.

Mad Scientist Book Club

Mad Scientist Book Club for Grades 2 - 5 is a monthly club that reads and discusses a science-related book (fiction/nonfiction; beginning chapter/graphic novel) and follows up the discussion with a hands-on experiment or activity.  Library location varies according to the planned activity.


Join Ms. Julie and Ms. Andrea for our Grade 5-9 book club for a science-themed book and complete a related STEAM project.  Perfect for our older Mad Scientists!

Genre Tasting

Be a Book Taster! This multi-age book club allows participants in Grades 2 -12 to choose their own title in a specified genre, read it, and share it with the group in a discussion facilitated by your librarians.   Your librarians will also choose a book in that genre with an accompanying recipe that we'll all prepare (and taste) during our book tasting discussion. Both Ms. Andrea and Ms. Julie have severe food allergies but are enthusiastic cooks, making them the perfect pair to lead this food and book tasting venture. Due to the nature of this program, children under age 12 must have a caregiver in the library during the program. Please note that the registration form requires all participants to indicate any food allergies or sensitivities.

Silent Book Club

Hibernate with a good book in great company this Winter Learning Program. The Bean Room is reserved each Wednesday from 4 - 5 pm for this social--but silent--event. Bring your own book and whatever you need to be comfy. Grades 1-6. No registration required.

As the Page Turns

Our monthly book discussion group for adults, As the Page Turns, meets on the second Monday of the month from 2 - 3:30 pm in the Bean Room of the library.  Each month, a different book group member will lead the discussion.  Pick up your copy of this month's selection at the Main Circulation desk.
