Book Discussion Group


The Library’s book discussion group meets monthly on the fourth Wednesday at 7:00 p.m.  The books are free to anyone with a valid Somersworth Public Library card and available the day after the previous group meeting.  Extra copies are on the display stand on the main floor of the library. Attendance is not required in order to borrow a copy of the book.  The group’s discussions are informal, often lively and all are welcome to attend as their schedule permits.

Here is the list of 2017 books with a brief description of the book.  2017-book-discussion-list
