Introducing the County-a Traveling Book Club

Something new in the County-a Traveling Book Club!

We are excited to have several of the county libraries join efforts to get people out in other communities and enjoy meeting new people to have great discussions on a book each month. The first meeting will be on Oct. 18, at the Phoenix Grill in Baldwin. We will be discussing "The Same Sky" by Amanda Eyre Ward. Come at 6 p.m. to order food if you like and book talk will start about 6:30 p.m. Call your local library to order your book and register for the book club. The group will typically meet the third Thursday of the month.
