Déjà Vu Book Club

In this book group for all ages, we'll be re-reading children's and teen classics, as well as some new favorites. Discussions are free and open to the public. No registration is necessary. We will usually have copies of the current month's book available for you to check out at the Ask a Librarian desk on the First Floor.

Discussions are held in the Quiet Reading Room on the First Floor of the Main Library every other month, on the third Saturday at 11 a.m.
