Book Groups

The Friends Book Club cordially invites all interested readers to attend the monthly meetings. Meetings are held from Sept-May on the second Wednesday of the month, from 6:30 – 8:00 p.m. in the Large Community Meeting Room. A limited number of copies of the book selected are available for members to borrow. Bozeman Public Library also attempts to provide copies of the selection in large type and CD format. Once the selected titles have been discussed, Book Club Kits are created that contain 8-10 copies of the book, information about the author, reviews of the book, and discussion questions for other book clubs to use. For more information about the Friends of the Library Book Club and available Book Club Kits please call 582-2410.
