Community Book Group

Library Type



Once a month a librarian leads an adult book discussion at a local YMCA community center. The book selection is usually fiction, but sometimes a non-fiction book is selected. The community center serves participants a hot lunch "sample", usually a pasta casserole. Participants often ask the librarian questions about technology/devices. The librarian brings the books to the center each month, and participants return their books at the next meeting. This location allows participation by attendees who could not walk the further distance from the main street (and bus stop) to the library. This is partnership between the library and North Boroughs YMCA Community Center. No direct costs were incurred by the library.
