So, what is a book club and why should you join?  A book club is simply a group of people who get together on a regular basis to discuss books. There are so many reasons to join a book club.  They can be an excellent way to enjoy books more and challenge your mind; they can also encourage you to read more, or to read books that you might not normally choose. The main reason for joining should be to have fun, make friends and meet like-minded people!


Book club will meet on the 3rd Thursday at 10:00 a.m. in the Library’s Meeting Room, 601 S.  Main Street Lillington.  Put it on your calendar.  Come to have fun; come with ideas, come with book suggestions.
