Discover new books and new friends

Join a Book Group

Reading may be a solitary activity, but we often enjoy discussing the stories, information, or concepts we have read about with others. Book groups provide a welcoming social setting for friends, neighbors, and community members to connect and share their love of literature.

Library book groups: online and in-person

Sno-Isle Libraries offer book groups focused on a variety of subjects, genres, and interests, like gardening, science fiction, cookbooks, mysteries, nonfiction, and more. Peruse the reading lists for existing book groups at and click on Library Book Club Picks.
