Join a Book Discussion Group on Goodreads

We've taken some of our most popular book discussion groups and made them virtual so you can still engage with exciting books with some of your favorite librarians throughout the summer. Find these groups and join the discussion on goodreads.com.

All titles listed are available on Hoopla; many are available in print/audio formats as well.

Feel Good Fiction

My Favorite Crime Book Club

Donuts and Death

Stories and Science

Social Justice

Cookbook Book Club

Try at least one recipe from a cookbook, then meet with other culinary aficionados to discuss how everyone's recipes turned out and review the books. We'll also talk food news, cooking techniques and publishing trends.

Too Busy for a Book Club? Join Readups Online

Want to talk about books but short on time? Forget the meet ups and join our virtual book club, ReadUps! Find ReadUps on Facebook and on our Goodreads page under Groups.

Each month we choose a topic or theme and suggest related titles, post polls and articles. Near the month's end, we find out what books you're reading and talk about them. Our summer topics are:

Imagine Your Story Summer Reading Program for All Ages


Programs inside the library branches have been curtailed to help minimize the impact of the coronavirus. So we're sending programs to you—virtually—through some live events and pre-recorded presentations.

Families can enjoy Storytime Live each Tuesday at 10 a.m. on the Library's Facebook page. Enjoy pre-recorded songs and stories with some of your favorite librarians on Storytime & More.
