Robbins Library Book Discussion Group

The Robbins Library Book Discussion Group was founded in 1994 by library volunteer Peter Glass, with support from the Robbins Library.  This group has been meeting monthly ever since. In 1996 Ann Honeycutt took over the role of volunteer facilitator (until her departure in 2015).  We are the longest-running book group at the Library.  

We read both fiction and non-fiction.  We select a list of books in the fall to read during the following year from nominations by Book Group members.  A sufficient quantity of each month's book selection is reserved by the library system and made available to Book Group members to check out a month in advance of the meeting. In order to have a large amount of books available we tend to select either "classics" or books that were very popular several years ago to ensure that the Minuteman Library system has  enough copies of the title available for us.  

We invite new members to join us at any meeting (it is not required that you have read the book for that month).
