Book Clubs

 St. Thomas Public Library has two book clubs that meet monthly! All are welcome to attend. Books are available on a first-come-first-serve basis.

STPL Book Club (2019 – 2020)

We are a friendly group of people with an interest in reading and discussing good books and we’d like you to join us! 

Book Club meets at 10:00 a.m. in the Carnegie Room.  An email will be sent to book club members when the book is available for pick up. Books will be distributed on a first come, first serve basis and a holds list will be created after that point.
