Book Club

Book Groups

There are five active book groups between the Main and Endicott libraries:

To sign up for a group, email or call (781) 751-9284 (Main book groups) or (781) 751-9178 (Endicott book groups).

We order a handful of books needed for the groups in advance, generally a month before each group meets.
The requested books can be picked up on the bookcase in the meeting room at Endicott; at the Main, the books are kept on the shelf at the circulation desk. ALL books MUST be checked out at the Circulation Desk.
