Supper Book Club – A book group for adults

The group usually meets the second  Monday of the  month from  5:30 pm – 7:00 pm at the library.  Selections are chosen by members a few months before the meeting date.  Copies of the book are available for checkout at the Circulation Desk  a month before the meeting.  Each month the club chooses a local restaurant that fits the theme of book, and dinner is ordered and delivered to the library.    Menus are available at the Circulation Desk and are emailed to members.   Coffee, tea and water are provided by the library. You may also bring your own supper.
