Book Club meets once per month. Join us to discuss a great book, share refreshments and socialize a bit! Each month we hold our meetings at a member’s home. The host provides light refreshments. Members interested in attending should RSVP to the host or one of the coordinators.

As always, we welcome anyone who loves to read. Please join us for our discussion.  Remember you can use your library card at any Fairfield County Library to check out this month’s selection.
