Book Club

The “Around Town” Book Club meets once a month to review and discuss the book of the month.  Open to men and women of all ages, this group is non-genre specific, and reads a variety of genre’s including Fiction, Science Fiction, Biography, Historical Fiction, Dystopia, Romance, Mystery, Thriller, Inspiration, Young Adult, etc.  Generally, the group mainly reads and reviews fiction, but everyone’s tastes are considered.  There are no member ship fees for this group. Occasionally  the group travels to different locations outside of the area, but for the most part meetings are held at a variety of locations “around town”, hence the name of the group.  Refreshments are always provided unless meetings are held at a restaurant, and a reading related challenge or game is played for an opportunity to win a prize each month as well.  New members are always welcome, and we encourage you to attend even if you have not read the book of the month.  Events are posted on the library Facebook page as well as the library web page at www.mtsterlingpubliclibrary.org
