Book Discussions at Keene Public Library and in the Community

Book clubs are a great way to share the joys of reading, as well as keep up with trends on the latest books and broaden one's tastes - not to mention enjoy the companionship of fellow readers. We have a number of book discussions that you can join. Or we can provide advice to help make your own club run more smoothly. To find out what book clubs and book discussion groups are going on at your library this month, check our online calendar

Book Discussions in the Community

Looking for a good book to discuss at your own book club? The New Hampshire Library Community is pleased to announce its READS-TO-GO Book Club Kits.  These Kits include 15 copies of a discussable book, discussion questions, author biographies, and information on starting and keeping a book club energized. Libraries and patrons are able to borrow the kits through the Keene Public Library's ILL. Check out the READS-To-Go Website to see what books are available. You may want to consider selecting one of these books for your next book discussion.

The Nobel Readers Book Discussion Group 
This group began meeting during the summer of 2008. Currently, we meet once a month (the third Tuesday) to read and discuss works of literature by winners of the Nobel Prize. Please check our online calendar for our next meeting. We welcome newcomers whether they have finished the book or not! Keep up with the Nobel Book Club's reading by checking out our Good Reads page. The nobel-readers-book-discussion-group shelf: Gail Zachariah's book recommendations, favorite quotes, book clubs, book trivia, book lists (nobel-readers-book-discussion-group shelf)

This group meets at the Keene Public Library at 6:30 p.m. on certain Thursdays, September through early June. Using a method of collaborative, question-driven discussion, members enjoy the opportunity to reflect on their own lives and convictions in light of ideas from major thinkers. Check our calendar for dates and readings.
