Adult Book Club

While the library is closed, the Adult Book Club is meeting via Zoom. If interested in joining, email julia.nock@closter.bccls.org.

This lively group of  avid readers enjoys in-depth discussions of popular and classic literary works. New members are always welcome, including non-residents. Copies of the next month’s book to be read are available at the upstairs circulation desk.

The book club meets the second Thursday of the month at 7:30pm, excepted when noted otherwise.
