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. To find out what book clubs and book discussion groups are going on at your library this month, check our online calendar
