Book Clubs

Love talking about your recent favorite books? Join one of our book discussion groups!

Helen Plum Library Book Club

The Helen Plum Book Club meets (currently virtually) once a month to discuss a wide variety of titles spanning both Fiction and Nonfiction. Join us on the third Thursday of the month at 7pm for our lively discussions! 

Helen Plum Library Book Club is hosted by Reader's Advisory Librarian Courtney.

Library Lounge

Designed with library lovers in their 20s through 40s in mind, Library Lounge is a monthly book club meetup hosted at various locations around Lombard. At meetings, which are usually the first Tuesday of the month, we hang out, support the establishment hosting us, and discuss a new book. Titles chosen are a mix of contemporary fiction, classics, and nonfiction. Library Lounge is hosted by Technology Librarian Erin.

Virtual Book Club: Own Voices

Social distancing can't keep us from chatting about our favorite books! Virtual Book Club offers an opportunity to discuss contemporary titles with others from the community via Zoom. The monthly program will spotlight work by authors from underrepresented or marginalized groups writing about their own experiences. Virtual Book Club is hosted by Reader's Advisory Librarian Stephanie.
