The Library’s first general Book(s) Discussion held on Wednesday January 3 was a great way to ring in the New Year. We had eight participants each take a turn talking about books they were reading, books they had received as gifts over the holidays or books they had a special attachment to for some reason. It was a diverse collection of titles and the free for all format of the program made for a lively discussion.Listed below, in no particular order, are the books mentioned during the discussion. If a copy of the book is in infosoup we’ve provided a link for you to go straight to the catalog and reserve a copy online. The next Book(s) Discussion will be March 7th at 4pm in the Library meeting room. We hope to see more of you here!
