Join us for the first meeting of the BYOB Book Club! The BYOB Book Club will meet monthly on the second Tuesday of each month from 6:00pm-7:00pm at the library.

What is the BYOB Book Club? Rather than having a designated book that all members read each month, each member will “Bring Your Own Book” to discuss during the meeting. Each month, there will be a featured genre or theme. Members will read a book within that theme, and then report back to the group during the monthly meeting with details on the book they read. This means you’ll get to read a book that interests you and will also get to hear about a bunch of other books!

To carry on the BYOB theme, you are welcome to bring your own personal beverage to enjoy during the book club meeting or enjoy a complimentary drink provided by the library.

During our first meeting in April, we will be discussing books in the fantasy genre. This can include high or low fantasy, magical realism, absurdism, and other forms of fiction with a magical twist! 

Need some ideas on where to get started in the fantasy genre? Here are some online resources:

The most popular fantasy books of all time in the Libby app
We asked, you answered: Your 50 favorite sci-fi and fantasy books of the past decade
The best cosy fantasy books to curl up with right now

This book club is led by library staff, and new attendees are welcome to join! If you are interested in joining this book club, please fill out the registration form. By registering to join this group, you will receive a reminder the day before each meeting this year.
