All the Books

If you love to talk about books, but don’t want to commit to a monthly meeting, our quarterly book club is just the place for you! There are no assigned titles or genres. Read any books you like. We will meet once each quarter to discuss the ones we loved and even the ones we didn’t.


12-To-Try Challenge

Introducing a new reading challenge for adults - 12 to Try.  In this year-long book lover's adventure we're going to challenge you to read 12 different genres.  Complete all 12 before the end of the year and receive an awesome prize.  If you don't know what to read, check our our recommendation pages, join one of our book discussions, or ask our team to create a curated list especially for you.  Our staff are at the ready to help suggest titles to inspire new reading interests and complete the challenge.

The challenge runs from January 1 - December 31, 2023
