The Adult Book Discussion group meets on the second Thursday of the month at 7:00 pm in the library's Board Room. We read thought-provoking titles, usually fiction, with the goal of stimulating a spirited discussion. Stop by the Reference Desk to pick up the featured book and come to the discussion to get the next month's title. Anyone with a library card may join the group.
