Book Clubs

Our book clubs may not be able to meet in person at the Library but everyone is welcome at our Online Book Clubs. Numbers are limited so that all participants have a chance to share their thoughts, so bookings are essential. All the books selected are available in audiobook format from RB Digital to library members.
