#Treat Your Shelf  

The holiday season is here! With all the parties and get-togethers, it can be a busy time. Plus, there's all that shopping, cooking and decorating! You should definitely reward yourself for all of that hard work by taking the time to read a good book!

If you're looking for ideas about what to read or looking for the perfect gifts for the book lovers in your life, join us at Library Book Club! Book clubs are one of the best ways to discover what other people are reading (and what they think about the books everyone else is reading). 


Never miss out! Get book club emails, program reminders and more!
