Monthly Adult Book Clubs

Adults in Benton County can find engaging conversation in the two different Adult Book Clubs. Anyone in the community is welcome to read and participate in the group through the mutual sharing of ideas and opinions.  

  • The noon club will be held virtually over Zoom and registration is required via our calendar; the 6:00 meeting will be in person starting in July.
  • An invitation with the meeting ID and discussion questions will be sent after we recieve your registration.
  • Books are available at the front desk.
