While public gatherings remain limited, librarians are still leading lively book discussion groups on Zoom! The library offers 6 different groups that discuss a variety of genres. Participants can pick up a copy of the book for most of the groups at the Check Out desk a few weeks before the discussion; some books may also be found in digital format.
To come to a group, register for it on the Adult Upcoming Events page. You’ll receive an email confirmation containing a Zoom link. When the meeting starts, just click on the link in your email. You do not need to have Zoom software on your computer. To participate fully, you will need a web camera and a microphone; if you do not, you will be able to see and hear the discussion, but not be seen or heard.
