Book Clubs at Ventress

The library has several book clubs available for adults! Interested in joining one? Contact the appropriate librarian, or stop by the library to pick up the current club read (we keep copies for each club on hold behind the circulation desk--just ask the circulation staff!).


Classic Book Group

This book group reads exclusively classic books and books that are on their way to be classics. Depending on the occasion, they will switch between fiction and non-fiction, and between short stories and longer novels. This book group generally meets on the second Wednesday of the month from 4:30-6:00, though they will often switch their meeting time in order to screen a film related to their chosen books (so please confirm dates with our calendar before making plans to attend!). Chris Woods (cwoods@ocln.org) is the contact for this book group.


Contemporary Book Group

This club, which reads a variety of contemporary fiction and non-fiction, meets on the second Wednesday of the month from 7:00-8:00 pm. Cyndee Marcoux (cmarcoux@ocln.org) is the contact for this group.


Non-fiction Book Group

The non-fiction book group reads new and old longform non-fiction. This club meets from 6:00-7:30 pm on the first Tuesday of each month. Nancy Hickey (nhickey@ocln.org) is the contact for this club.
