Bagels and Books

Are you always looking for books to read? Would you like to try books outside your favorite genres? This discussion might be for you!

Starting this fall, the Friends will host a new kind of book discussion called Bagels and Books. This is different from a traditional book club in that you don’t need to read a specific book. Instead, we’ll suggest a genre for the month and you can read any book you like from that category. When we gather, we’ll trade suggestions and book recommendations (and pans!) Everyone who participates will come away with a reading list. There will also be bagels! For  November, we'll meet on Saturday, Nov. 23rd at 10:30 a.m. to discuss books that make great gifts to give or receive.


So you like the idea, but need some suggestions to get started? Here are two ways to get ideas. First, we’ll have a display at the library at the beginning of each month with hand-selected titles from the current category. Second, we’ve started a blog for people to post their recommendations. Go to and read the conversations for any of the topics there. You don’t need to create an account or remember a password to read posts. But if you want to add your own thoughts, you need to enter your name and email address for the first post.
