book clubs:

The library book club is an open group to everyone who loves to read a good book and then talk about it. This informal group is made up of both genders, a variety of ages and definitely differing points of view. They laugh, they share, they ponder and they nearly always find themselves coming back.

Ask at the circulation desk for more information, where we keep copies of the book for the current month.

Books in Bars book club (for 20s and 30 somethings) Usually on a Tuesday evening at alternative bars and restaurants in Rutland County. This is not a library-sponsored club, so please find them on Facebook for more information.
