The book club at the Dearborn Branch meets the second Tuesday of each month. Our next meeting will be September 14th, 2010 at 4 p.m. We are a congenial group and would love to have you join us.

Get together with a group of your friends, and start a book club. That is what many people have done here at the Blue Springs North Branch. We have many community book clubs such as church groups, young moms, retired librarians and teachers, senior groups, mothers and daughters, or just good friends getting together once a month to discuss their favorite books.
