Matthews Library Monthly Book Club

The club meets upstairs in the library at 5:30 p.m. on the fourth Tuesday of the month to discuss the month’s literary selection. Members take turns leading each month’s discussion. We hope you’ll take the time to participate in this vibrant club!

* Most titles are available in county either on shelf here at the library or upon request from another library in Lebanon County. Inquire at the circulation desk for availability. Titles for upcoming months are ordered in advance of the meeting for members to take home at the end of each month’s discussion. If you wish to read ahead, it is your responsibility to request titles online or through the staff at the circulation desk.
