The library is hosting its 13th annual gathering of all area readers and book clubs on Tuesday, September 18th, 2018.  Cookies and water will be served at 12:30 , followed by a gathering where we will all share what books we have read and enjoyed (or hated) in the past year or so.  All book clubs and readers — from neighborhood groups to the tennis buddies to solo readers — are invited to come together to discuss and gossip about our common love: books!  If you are part of a book club, bring along a list of what your club has read in the past year. Copies of book lists from various clubs will be available to take home with you.
