The Unexpected Book Club with Rita Oberto
Second Monday of the month December 12, 2016 11:00 a.m.

The Unexpected Book Club meets on second Monday of the month at 11:00 a.m. Book Club reading, discussion and socializing can be a lot of fun. Sometimes it can be tricky to find a book that no one has read yet and everyone will enjoy.  Rita uncovers new books each month which may not be on your “to read” list. We will be discussing The Bad-Ass Librarians of Timbuktu: And Their Race to Save the World's Most Precious Manuscripts by Joshua Hammer.


Unexpected Book Club

Please call the library at 856-845-5593  to register for these free programs. 
 Refreshments and door prizes!
