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 read individually during the month.  Coffee is always available and there are usually treats! All are welcome and no registration is required.

Literature Over Spartan Time (LOST)

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.  Food and pop is provided!  Students choose three books to be read throughout the year, one per trimester, and discussed at monthly meetings. 

If you are a 9th-12th grader who is interested in joining the group, please contact Lenah at the library for details.

Interested in Starting a Book Club?

We've got the space if you've got the group!  Hold your book club at the library in any of our available spaces.  Make it a monthly gathering to discuss the book of your choosing.  We can also interlibrary-loan multiple copies of books from other Iowa libraries, for free, for your group.  Contact the library to get started!  319-825-3607
