Greenwood County Library Book Clubs

The Greenwood County Library sponsors several different kinds of book clubs, but they all have one basic purpose - to promote the enjoyment of reading. If you like to read and if you're willing to read outside your comfort zone and discuss each book's author, characters, themes, ideas, etc. respectfully with others, then the Library probably has a book club for you. The Library provides copies of the titles used in its book discussion groups at no charge while supplies last. You may bring your lunch and eat while we discuss the featured title. Check out the following times and titles to find the group that best suits you.

Please remember that you are not in school. Reading any or all of these titles is not required. If you begin reading a book and decide you don't like it, don't finish it. Life is too short to read books/authors we don't like.
