October Book Discussion
Join us October 21, 11 a.m. at the Libby Library for “A Hot Drink and A Good Book,” our monthly book discussion. This month features The End of Your Life Book Club by Will Schwalbe. During her treatment for cancer, Mary Anne Schwalbe and her son Will spent many hours sitting in waiting rooms together. To pass the time, they would talk about the books they were reading and an informal book club of two was born. Through their wide-ranging reading, Will and Mary Anne – and we, their fellow readers – are reminded how books can be comforting, astonishing, and illuminating, changing the way that we feel about and interact with the world around us. Copies are available at the library.
Due dates for book discussion materials are final. If the book is more than 3 days overdue, the cost of the book may be charged to your account. Books for discussion are lent to us from libraries around the state and are often in demand by another library immediately following our use. In order to deliver book discussion kits to libraries in a timely manner, missing books must be replaced immediately. This cost is charged by the library that owns and lends the kit to the library borrowing the kit. Unfortunately, we cannot afford to absorb this cost.
We can always place a hold on a regular library copy of the book for you to check out and finish reading, if necessary. Please contact the library at 293-2778 if you have any questions. Thank you.
