1st Tuesday of each month @ 7:00 pm

“Whenever you read a good book, somewhere in the world a door opens to allow in more light.” – Vera Nazarian

Read a book!
Book Clubs are about challenging yourself to read books you wouldn’t normally choose. This book club challenges its members to read any book fitting the category listed, and to prepare a short “teaser” that is just a few lines about the book to share with the group. Everyone is busy, but if we share the load we can help each other discover new and interesting books that we might want to find time to read.

Discuss at the library!
Meet to discuss on the 1st Tuesday of Each Month, 7:00 – 8:00 pm at Louisburg Library.
