Book Groups

Get involved in a book or writers group at the library!

The next best thing to reading a book is discussing it with friends! There are many opportunities to be a part of a book club at one of the RCLS branches.

Afternoon Book Club at Linebaugh

The Afternoon Book Club meets on the 1st Thursday of each month at 1 p.m. in the Linebaugh Conference Room. The Afternoon Book Club reads a mixture of light and serious novels and nonfiction and enjoys outings several times a year.

Forever Young Book Club at Linebaugh

Forever Young Adult book club is a group of YA fans who are a little less “Y”(oung) and a bit more “A”(dult). Whether you’re a regular YA reader or you need a break from your usual “to read” list, all are welcome! Meets every third Saturday at 2:00 in the Meeting Room at Linebaugh.

“Books & Brews in the Boro” is an ebook club based out of the Technology Engagement Center. The plan is to meet monthly, off-site, at a fine, locally owned establishment.  
Our titles will be chosen using hoopla, which is FREE with your library card (which is also free!) – so there are no holds, no waiting, no kidding!
