Library Book Club

Enjoy lively discussions about a variety of books at our evening book club. Limited complementary copies are available at the library’s front desk. Our group has been going strong since 2013. We discuss everything from Dennis Lehane’s Shutter Island, to Alice Hoffman’s Practical Magic, to Marley and Me by John Grogan.  There is no genre, topic or author we won’t tackle at least once.  We also have a good time sharing books and movies that we have experienced in the past month.

Writers Support Group

Our Writers Support Group has been meeting since 2014.  We are primarily a group of emerging writers, but all levels of experience are welcome. Share your projects in a comfortable and enthusiastic atmosphere.  Get help on everything from grammar to clarity and flow. We share writing exercises using videos, prompts, and worksheets.  We also workshop and brainstorm ideas to improve our projects.

You are welcome to visit without participating. Our slogan is “We do not bite!”
