All the Books

Have you read a great book or series lately and want to talk about it or want to get reading suggestions from your fellow book lovers?  We will discuss what books we are enjoying, which books we are not, and what we are reading next.  Discover “new to you books” from other readers as well as a rundown of new books hitting the library shelves each month.  Sign up once and Zoom with us on the first Thursday every month.

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
