Virtual Adult Book Club

Join your host Carl Lewis on the fourth Monday of each month via Zoom, unless otherwise noted. To sign up, email Carl at polymath55@gmail.com or call the library at (607) 535-2346.

JANUARY 24: Read Any Good Books Lately? Open Discussion
FEBRUARY 28: Saving CeeCee Honeycutt by Beth Hoffman
MARCH 28: Read Any Good Books Lately? Open Discussion

Read Any Good Books Lately? Every other month the group holds an open book discussion. Members are encouraged to bring a list of titles that they would recommend instead of discussing just one book. This is not limited to fiction. It can be anything!

**Participants without email may dial-in by phone.**

Tween Book Club

The Tween Book Club will next meet on Wednesday December 29 at 3pm to discuss Divergent by Veronica Roth.

Historical Fiction Book Club

This is a low-maintenance online meeting space where you can share your love for historical fiction at your own convenience. There are no scheduled monthly meeting dates! We simply choose a book for the month and read at our own pace. We aim to provide a diverse range of historical fiction content that takes place across multiple continents and time periods. Participation in group discussions is not required, by any means.

We will do our best to make monthly book titles available for pickup in-person at the library, as well as on the Libby App (our digital e-book and audiobook content available to you through your Southern Tier Library System card).
