Two Book Groups at ALP Library
There are two book discussion groups at the library -- one meets from September to May, and one meets in July and August.
Why two groups? They're a little bit different from each other...
The September - May group introduces a selection of books that covers different genres and authors. You may attend as many discussions as you'd like; if you'd like to attend digitally, Zoom links are available.
The July - August group reads four books chosen by a committee, and each book in the series follows a theme. If possible, it's nice to attend all of the sessions and watch the theme develop and grow. See schedule below.

The theme for Fall's book discussion is banned and challenged books.
