Community Choice Book Club

Want to have a say in what we are discussing in our community?  Join the Community’s Choice Book Club. Discussions will rotate library branches each quarter.

Every quarter we will give the community three book options for our next read. Cast your vote for the book you are most interested in discussing with fellow community members. The book with the most votes will become our next community read. 

 Voting will take place online. Patrons can come into the library to vote, but we will ask them to cast the vote on the computer.

Which one will you choose?
