Book Groups

A picture of a book group discussion.

Isn’t it fun to talk about a book you just read with others? The Nevins Library hosts several different Book Groups to do just that. We have groups for children, teens, and several different themed groups for adults. It’s a great way to get together with friends to talk about books and current topics.

Whether you’ve participated in our Book Groups before, or not, there is always room for new members. Come to a meeting and see if you like it

Stranger Than Fiction Book Group

“Stranger than Fiction” is a book club specifically for those who enjoy reading non-fiction. We’ll read across all topics within non-fiction (e.g. Biographies, True Crime, Travelogues, etc.) except for the troublesome two—religion and politics. After all, we want to start a discussion, not a fight!

The group meets on the 2nd Monday of each month at 7pm (barring holidays).

Selected books are available at the Main Desk for each month leading to the meeting.

New Members are always welcome!
