Book Discussion Groups

The Library offers a wide variety of book discussion groups—including some just for teens and kids—at agencies throughout the system. Membership is open to everyone; there are no dues or fees. Most groups meet regularly once a month and the discussions last between one and two hours. Copies of titles to be discussed are collected ahead of time by library staff. Use our program calendar to access a list of upcoming discussions or contact your local branch for details.

Interested in starting your own discussion group? Sites by Subject has a list of websites that you might find helpful. And if you’re looking for some reading ideas, our librarians have compiled a list of novels from our collection that are sure to spark a lively discussion.
