Book Clubs

Everyone is welcome!   No book purchase is necessary to participate.    Books to be read are chosen by the group members, with recommendations by the librarians.    For more info:     Rebecca 684-3813.


Teen Book Club  -  We are holding another session on Thurs. Jan. 14th at 3:45 (snack provided)  

 Book will be decided soon.  This will be a one-time meeting and we can decide if we want to meet again later.  

Pick up your own free copy of the book anytime after Dec. 21st.  We will discuss it on Jan. 14th and decide if we want to meet again, and what days and times.   Come give us your ideas!

  This group has met regularly before on the last Tuesday of each month at 3:45 for about 45 minutes, but day and time are up for negotiation.  B-W Bus #9 stops right at the library at 3:35.  Call the library if interested and we will get you a copy of the next book (ask for Hope;  Hope Melander is the facilitator).    



Afternoon Book Club:  (ages 18 and over) -  Meets last Tuesday of each month at 1:00pm.

Books chosen are slightly older popular titles so that we can order multiple copies from the MORE system and no book purchase is necessary to participate.                              (Note different date due to Thanksgiving)       

  Tues. Dec. 1, 1:00-   The Cherry Harvest, by Lucy Sanna

The war has taken a toll on the Christiansen family. With food rationed and money scarce, Charlotte struggles to keep her family well fed. Her teenage daughter, Kate, raises rabbits to earn money for college and dreams of becoming a writer. Her husband, Thomas, struggles to keep the farm going while their son, and most of the other local men, are fighting in Europe. When their upcoming cherry harvest is threatened, strong-willed Charlotte helps persuade local authorities to allow German war prisoners from a nearby camp to pick the fruit -- unleashing unexpected consequences.

Based on true situations in Wisconsin during World War II.   



Evening Group:    Thurs. Dec.  17, 7:00pm

The book discussed next time will be:      Orphan Train, by Christina Baker Kline

"Close to aging out of the foster care system, Penobscot Indian Molly Ayer takes a community service position helping an elderly woman named Vivian clean out her home and discovers that they are more alike than different as she helps Vivian solve a mystery from her past."

  It is a great book for discussing, so order one from the MORE system and think about joining us to talk about what you liked or didn't like about it!   If you  prefer,  call the library at 684-3813 and we can order one for you.
