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.

STEAM Reads

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.

Book Buzz - for Teens

Book Buzz is a Saturday book club for Teens grades 9 thru 12, led by Bailey and Erin.  Each month we'll discuss thought-provoking titles over a light breakfast, genereously provided by the Friends of the Library. The group meets on the second Saturday of the month at 11 am. Copies of this month's book are available for check out at the Main Desk. Registration required.

Radical Reads Book Group

The Radical Reads Book Group for Adults invites its members to read outside their comfort zone and confront hot topics in the news.  Subjects include immigration, gender and racial equality, and other social issues of the day. This monthly group, led by Andrea, meets on the 2nd Thursday of the month at 6:30 pm in the Bean Room.

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.
