Book Clubs

Bremen Public Library has eight book clubs. Each group meets monthly to learn, enjoy and share their opinions and ideas about books. One member leads the discussion with questions and ideas to get other members to participate with their points of view. Everyone is welcome! Please stop by if you are interested in joining a group, or e-mail a specific club leader directly.
