Book Clubs

There are two book clubs for adults that meet at your Ruby Sisson Library.

Ruby’s Book Club (formerly called the Adult Book Club) meets at 2 pm on the second Tuesday of every month to discuss fiction and nonfiction titles.

The Literary Ladies Book Club meets at 10 am at the library on the fourth Friday of every month except November. Their December meeting is held at a different location.

Books are available to pick up at the library approximately one month before the discussion date.
