Start your own book discussion group!

For more than 10 years, staff at the Gardiner Public Library has conducted monthly book discussion groups.  We have a group that meets once a month to read an assortment of titles.  Our other group fondly labels themselves the RIP-pers (Readers Into Paranormal titles) and they also meet once a month.  If you wish to join either of these groups, please contact a staff member.
Because the library purchases multiple titles for these discussion groups, we end up with lots of books with the same title.  Staff had the great idea of bundling these titles together and offering them out to our library community.  All that you need to do is check out the bundle of books and invite friends over for a great time of discussing a book and enjoying some light snacks and beverages.  It really is a great way to meet your neighbors and to stay in touch with some old friends!
The book bundles will be checked out for 6 weeks and we have a diversity of titles.  We have titles that deal with time travel (Kindred by Octavia Butler) and novels that have such depth of story that it will stay with you long after you finish the last page (Sarah’s Key by Tatiana de Rosnay).  The library group has yet to discuss 50 Shades of Grey by E.L. James, but keep checking back, you never know!
For a list of available titles please contact us at we will forward along the list.
