Book Clubs

Three of the many active Bradford Book discussion groups meet regularly at the Library. The Friends of the Library and the No Rules Book Club are open to the public and welcome new members.

The Library makes an effort to have at least 2 copies of each title selected by the these two adult public book clubs.


Meets the 2nd Wednesday of each month at 6:30 pm in the Carnegie or Community Room.

Wednesday, June 12 @ 6:30pm - Reader's choice of a book by or about Anne Morrow Lindbergh 


Meets on selected Saturdays in the Carnegie Room of the library.

Contact Pat Shinaberger for more information.

Saturday, June 22 @ 10:30am - At her home for a Lumberjack breakfast, Betsy Costello will lead a discussion of Last Night in Twisted River by John Irving 

July - Karen Cassin will lead a discussion of Gone Girl by Gillian Flynn



Members meet once a month to get their NEW book (that they can keep!). They discuss the previous book and munch on pizza! All for FREE!!

Next meeting April 15 from 5:00pm - 6:00pm

Call the library (362-6527) to reserve your space in the club! Participation is limited!
