Book Club

Do you yearn to share your love of books and reading?

If so, join the Bossard Booklovers for a stimulating and fun discussion every month.

Meetings are held in the Riverside Room at Bossard Library.

  • October through March: 4th Saturday of the month at 10:00 AM
  • April through September: 4th Thursday of the month at 5:30 PM

All interested readers are welcome to attend. Books are chosen based on the interests of the group and can include non-fiction, bestsellers, classics, and genre fiction.

With enough advance notice, the library can provide a copy of the current book club selection for you to read.
