Resolve to Join A Book Discussion in the New Year

January 2015 Book Discussions, tiled display of book covers, follow the link for titles, descriptions and details about discussion datesThe Prince George's County Memorial Library System holds book discussions through out the year. They are held at different locations, on different days of the week and at different times, so that you can find one that is convenient for your schedule. 

Book discussions are an excellent chance to meet new people, expand your reading horizons and try books you may not have chosen for yourself, and engage in discussion and debate.

Interested in joining a discussion? Here is a list of upcoming book discussions

Need help obtaining a copy of a book being discussed? Call the branch hosting the discussion. Often they pull together copies a few weeks ahead of time for participants to check out. 

Want to create your own book club? Information staff can connect you with different resources.

Novelist, an Online Library resource, contains book discussion guides and readers advisory suggestions.

These are a few other sites with book club recommendations and resources:

Before selecting a book, double check the library's catalog to make sure that there are enough copies for your group. This helps keep costs down for your group members.

Need a neutral place to hold your book club? The library has rentable conference rooms and meeting rooms.
