All library book clubs (except Diverse Voices) are in-person.  Discussions will be held in the Bumphrey Room and social distancing will be in effect.  Masks are recommended for all patrons. No registration is necessary (with the exception of Diverse Voices); pick up a book at the Check Out desk a few weeks before the discussion; some books may also be found in digital format.   Book clubs are for adults ages 18+.
