  • Book Discussions

    Book clubs are a great way to share the joys of reading, keep up with trends on the latest books, and broaden one's tastes. We have several book discussions that you can join. Or we can provide advice to help make your 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

    Book Discussions in the Community

    Are you looking for an excellent book to discuss at your book club? 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 John Johnson at 603-352-0157 for assistance. You may consider selecting one of these books for your next book discussion.
