Book discussion groups and kits
Reading and literary socializing go hand-in-hand at GCPL book discussions. Check out any of the following books at the library a few weeks in advance of the scheduled discussion and enjoy. We’ve got plenty of copies because we know we’ve got plenty of readers. Discussions are open to anyone who loves to read and share ideas.
Along with our in-library reading and discussion circles, GCPL also offers kits of regular and large-print titles for non-library discussion groups. If you belong to a book discussion group that meets outside of the library, check out how we can help you.
