The library has begun a new Monthly Book Discussion Group. This group will meet one Saturday afternoon a month. The group is designed to give the flexibility that busy people need. Those interested can come to any session, but are not required to attend all sessions. Newcomers are always welcome.
The West Virginia Library Commission is lending us copies of the upcoming titles. At each discussion, copies of the next month's book will be made available. After the meeting, copies of each month's book will be available from the Assistant Director. Copies will always be available from the library's collection or InterLibrary Loan. Some titles will also be available through WV Deli.
March's discussion will be held on March 23rd at 1:30. This month's book is March by Geraline Brooks. This Pulitzer Prize winning novel is a fictionalized account of the Civil War experiences of Mr. March, a Union chaplain and the father of Jo, Beth, Amy and Meg of Little Women. The following are the titles and meeting dates for the next few months:
