 Book Signings

On occasion the Library schedules book signings for local and regional authors. Patrons may come to meet the authors and learn more about their recent publications. Watch our calendar and check back here. 


Reader’s Corner

The Library hosts an informal book discussion group open to any patron. The group meets monthly to discuss books selected by its members. Participants are not required to attend discussions, but may choose to join the group when the book interests them. The Library orders multiple copies of paperback editions of the books to be discussed and makes them available to the group members. When possible, the Library also obtains an audio version of the book. Click HERE to view the Reader's Corner page.
