Join a new genre-specific book club!

Do you have a favorite reading genre but no one to talk about it with? Then make way for the Inglorious Bookworms Book Club and choose your own reading adventure.

Each month the book club will feature a different genre that you can dive into or skip. So whether romance makes you swoon, science fiction takes you where no one has gone before, or mysteries have you donning a deerstalker hat, this book club is designed for your reading life. Revel in your genre and become . . . an Inglorious Bookworm.

What are you reading to start off 2022?

If you have been itching to talk about the books you read, then join fellow readers for BookTalk on the first Thursday of each month.

BookTalk, everyone’s favorite sharing time for readers, will meet at 11:00 a.m. on Thursday, January 6. Join group discussion leader Krystal Smalley for a casual talk about books. No matter the subject or genre, all readers are welcome to talk about anything book related.

For more information about this or any other Upper Sandusky Community Library program, stop by the front desk or call the library at 419-294-1345.
