Book Clubs

We have 4 different book clubs that meet each month, everyone is welcome at each one.

Book Club:

We meet the 3rd Monday of each month at 2:00pm.  Members each read the same book before we meet and then disscuss the book.  Once a year we suggest books for the upcoming year and vote on the ones we will read.   We meet in the library around the conference table.
If you would like to participate, please pick up a book at the circulation desk and then join us that month for discussion.  Click here for list of books we are reading:

Cookbook Klatch:

We meet the 1st Wednesday of each month at noon in the Talen Community Room.  Participants check out a cookbook or magazine from the library, after choosing a recipe, make the recipe and then bring it along with a copy of the recipe.  We gather around the table family style and enjoy each other's food.  We talk about the recipes and other food topics.  After the meal, we make a copy of each recipe for everyone to keep.  We do not preplan the meals - just bring whatever you like and come when it fits your schedule.  Here is a list of items brought to past gatherings:


Scones & Tomes:

We meet on the 2nd Wednesday of each month at 11:30pm around the table in the Carnegie Cafe.  As we enjoy a freshly baked scone or other baked good and a cup of tea or coffee we talk about what we have been reading lately.  Suggestions that come up in the club are listed here:
