Adult Book Group


We are celebrating 30+ years of reading and meeting. Virginia Fetscher, Assistant Director has been leading this successful Book Discussion Group since 1983.

The Library’s Book Discussion Group meets every three weeks (with occasional one-week lapses due to holidays). The group meets on Wednesday evenings at 8 PM and talks informally about plot, character, motivation, language, and anything else that comes to mind for about an hour before checking out the author’s biographical facts and what critics have had to say about the book under discussion.

Anyone interested is cordially invited to pick up a copy of the upcoming book (lists for future dates and copies of the current book are always available) and join the fun! The books are almost always fiction, with a fair distribution between male and female authors; and a range of publication dates from the nineteenth century up to a few months ago.
