Book Clubs

Kaffee Klatch

Each month, on the first Monday at 10am, the library holds Kaffee Klatch in the library meeting room.  During this informal book club, a library staff member and attendees each discuss what they've read individually during the month.  Coffee is always available and there are usually treats! All are welcome and no registration is required.

It's a Mystery Book Club

Do you enjoy reading a good mystery or thriller? Would you like to unravel the plot & discuss whodunit with fellow mystery lovers? Join us for our mystery book club which meets on the last Tuesday of each month. We have an afternoon and evening session to best fit your schedule. We select a new book each month from across the mystery genre to discuss at that month's meeting. Multiple copies of the title are interlibrary loaned, sign up at the Service Desk to reserve your copy!

Genre Roulette Book Club

We’re spinning the wheel and letting fate decide our monthly reading selections! Each month we're choose a book based on the genre we've landed on. Our genre options include: Non-Fiction, Comedy, Science Fiction, Historical Fiction, Romance, Mystery, Young Adult, Biography & Memoirs, and Classic Literature. Multiple copies of the title will be available at the Service Desk. Join us on the last Tuesday of each month at 6:30pm.

Literature Over Lunch (LOL)

Once a month, library staff meet with teachers and students grades 9th-12th at the Grundy Center High School to discuss various literary themes, genres, and books.  Pizza is provided!  Students choose three books to be read throughout the year, one per trimester, which are then discussed at monthly meetings.
If you are a 9th-12th grader who is interested in joining the group, please contact Emery at the library for details.
