If you love to read and talk about books, we would love to have you join our club!

We are a small and informal group who meet in the Read & Relax area of our library and chat about our book for a little longer than an hour, once a month. Every few months, as a group we agree on a short list of books that we want to read and discuss, making sure that there are enough library copies of the book to go around. We also take turns bringing a small snack to share with the group (optional).

If you are interested in joining our club, please feel free to drop in at our next meeting (first Tuesday of the month at 7pm). Please contact Mary or Miranda by phone (403-782-3433) or email (mary.contrary@libs.prl.ab.ca) with any questions or comments about the book club.
