Book Groups

We offer a few separate book discussion groups each month.

New members are always welcome. Come once or as many times as you wish.

Discussion titles are available at the checkout desk. They may also be available on CD, or as a digital audiobook or eBook via OverDrive or hoopla. Search our catalog, or ask our Reference staff for assistance at 978-921-6062 (6066 for Farms) or
