Book Discussions in the Library and in the Community

The Libray hosts writers throughout the year but the major literary event is held during the Annual Meeting of the Friends of he Keene Public Library each spring.

Book clubs are a great way to share the joys of reading, as well as keep up with trends on the latest books and broaden one's tastes - not to mention enjoy the companionship of fellow readers. We have a number of book discussions that you can join. Or we can provide advice to help make your own club run more smoothly.

  • Reads to Go (Book Club Kids) in the Community

    The New Hampshire Library Community is pleased to announce its READS-TO-GO Book Club Kits. These Kits include 15 copies of a discussable book, discussion questions, author biographies, and information on starting and keeping a book club energized. Check out the READS-To-Go Website to see what books are available and then contact Gail Zachariah at 603-352-0157 for assistance. You may want to consider selecting one of these books for your next book discussion.

    The Great Books Discussion Group meets at the Keene Public Library at 6:30 p.m. on certain Thursdays, late August/September through early June. Using a method of collaborative, question-driven discussion, members enjoy the opportunity to reflect on their own lives and convictions in light of ideas from major thinkers. Check our calendar for dates and our Great Books webpage for details about the readings.
