Girls Night Out Book Group

On break until September!

Are you a book lover who finds pleasure in reading and discussing books?  We invite you to join the Library's "Girl's Night Out" Book Group.  Join us the second Thursday of each month at 6:30pm.  

The group will be meeting on Thursday, September 14th at 6:30pm to discuss "America's First Daughter: A Novel" by Laura Kamoie and Stephanie Dray.  

Joining a book group has great benefits.  You will be encouraged to read more, explore outside genres you normally read, and make new friends.  The Granby Library Book Group covers a wide range of genres which include both fiction and non-fiction titles.  Group members vote on titles they want to read a few months in advance.  The discussions are always very lively and entertaining.  Upcoming book titles are available at the library in different formats - regular print, large print, and audio.  

Looking for a great book to read?  Check out our list of book group books that have been read in the past!
