Greenwood County Library Book Clubs

The Library sponsors several different kinds of book clubs. We read mysteries, classics, regional writers, and an eclectic mix. The Library provides copies of the titles used in its book discussion groups at no charge. Bring your lunch and eat while we discuss our featured title. Check out the following times and titles to find the book group that best suits you. Free paperback copies of the books are available at the Greenwood County Library while supplies last.
