Historically, the Great Reads Book Club has met the third Saturday of each month at 11 AM in the Marshall library boardroom. Currently, meetings are held on Zoom. For more information or access to the Zoom meeting, please visit the Great Reads Book Club page or contact the library. You will need to contact the library or a book club member for the password to access the Zoom meeting.

There is no pressure… just a chance to share your opinions or listen in as others share theirs.

Copies of each month’s title will be available at the front desk of the library for book club participants. You may also request a copy via the catalog. Many titles are also available in audiobook or large print editions.

Prefer a digital edition? Some of these titles will be available in ebook or eaudio formats. Don't forget to search OverDrive, hoopla, and RBdigital.
