The Book Club meets at 5:30pm on the first Monday of the month. 

About

Our Book Club is for adult patrons interested in reading a variety of genres and discussing all types of literature. Anyone is welcome to join our discussions. We choose our books to read through suggestions from club members. A book club member is welcome to suggest a title and he or she is responsible for providing the questions and leading the discussion that month. All other members are expected to read the book (or give it their best shot). At our Book Club, no one says “I won’t read that!” For more information, email the Book Club at kate@woodriverlibrary.org.
