Do you enjoy discussing fiction and non-fiction books?  Dublin Library currently offers three book discussion groups for adults. All the book discussion groups read and discuss a wide variety of fiction and nonfiction books and discuss the same book titles at different times.

The Second Thursday Book Discussion Group meets on the second Thursday of every month from 12:30 PM to 2:00 PM in the Dublin Library Program Room.  On July 14th, 2016, Second Thursday Book Discussion Group will discuss a New York Times Notable Book, “To the End of June:  The Intimate Life of American Foster Care,” by Cris Beam.  Cris Beam is a foster mother and, through her other books and reporting, has spent a lot of time with people impacted by the child welfare system. She was amazed that we could spend more than 20 billion dollars a year in this country on a system that nobody—not the foster kids, not the foster or biological parents, not the social workers, not the administrators or commissioners—thinks is working.  She wanted to find out why.

Adult book discussion groups at Dublin Library are limited to a maximum of 10 participants per group.  The Second Thursday Book Discussion Group welcomes new members.  If you’d like to participate, come to the Adult Information Desk and pick up a copy of the book to read and come ready to have a lively and thought-provoking discussion with group members on July 14th, 2016.

The Third Thursday Book Discussion Group and the Wednesday Evening Adult Book Discussion Group are not looking for new members at this time.
