NEW: Short Story Club

[Due to the library's closure until May 17 all of our book clubs have gone digital. Contact the club leader for more info]

Short on time? Join Short Story Club. 

Each month we'll read a handful of stories (no more than 100 pages) and meet up to talk about 'em.

Second Wednesdays 7-8. Meeting Room A
