NOTE: For book club meeting dates, you can check our events calendar, or follow the links below to a specific group page. Thanks for your interest!

Your Choice Book Discussion Group: Join us on the 2nd Friday of each month during the noon hour. We talk about what each person is reading and what they might recommend (or say we should avoid). We'd love to hear about what has captured your imagination! (And you can bring your lunch.)
