Celebrate National Reading Group Month!

Celebrate National Reading Group Month!

October 3, 2022

Have you read all of today’s hottest titles? Do you like to share your thoughts and chat with others about new and popular books? Then come to the Library to celebrate National Reading Group Month!

The Library hosts book groups at nearly every location. Find upcoming book groups at your local branch as well as virtual groups that you can attend via Zoom. MCPL has Family, Kid, Tween, and Teen Book Groups too, so the whole community can have access to books, activities, and new social opportunities to connect.

Do you want to start your own book group? Reach out to the fantastic MCPL Book Group team or your local branch to get started. There are over 1,100 titles to choose from, in every genre, which is sure to appeal to your group. If you are a voracious reader, consider joining our MCPL Readers’ Lounge on Facebook or becoming our friend on GoodReads.

MCPL strives to ensure all members of the community have access to the materials they need. Are you homebound? Explore MCPL’s Library-By-Mail service. Are you an educator who needs more books for your class? Utilize the Library’s Teacher Assistance program. Let us help you help your students! Did you know that MCPL even has a mobile branch called the Reading Rocket, which brings Library services into the community?
