Enjoy meeting new people and talking about good books through one of two book groups offered at the Canby Public Library.

The two book groups meet monthly and offer something for everyone.

Both groups meet at the library in front of the fireplace for an informal discussion, lasting about one hour. Selected book titles are available through the library system. The public is invited to join.
