The library offers book clubs at different times of the day for lovers of books who would like to get together to discuss popular and thought-provoking titles. Both Book Clubs discuss the same book each month. Book Club books are available on the Front Desk or we can place a copy on hold from another library.

The Library Book Club will be discussing "Salt Houses" by Hala Alyan in April.

Book Summary: Foreseeing blessings and troubles in the lives of her daughter and grandchildren, Salma endures hardships stemming from the Six-Day War of 1967 in Palestine before rebuilding in Kuwait, before the family is scattered by Saddam Hussein's regime. Lyrical and heartbreaking, Salt Houses is a remarkable debut novel that challenges and humanizes an age-old conflict we might think we understand--one that asks us to confront that most devastating of all truths: you can't go home again.
