Friday Morning Book Group at the Main Library

Our Friday Morning Book Group has gone virtual! See our latest video below.

All are welcome to join us for discussion via ZOOM until we are all safe to meet again in person. The group meets on the third Friday of each month at 10AM. Copies of the monthly titles are available at the Information Desk for you to borrow. The monthly discussion titles may range from historical fiction, memoirs, classics and contemporary fiction. For more information, contact Deb Berenbaum at dberenbaum@wellesleyma.gov. Visit the Library Events Calendar or drop by the Information Desk to find out what we are reading.

Book Chat Zoom

Join in to give a ‘thumbs up’ or ‘thumbs down’ to your recent reading and come away with a list of recommended titles for what to read next. New members are always welcome.   Call Information Services at 781-235-1610 for more information.  Contact for Zoom info: Deborah Pelegrini-Yong.
