Senior Book Break

Senior Book Break is a popular program unique to our library. It's not like other book clubs that ask everyone to read the same book. Instead, readers gather together for good conversations about many different books, authors, and genres.

Each meeting begins with a topic—suggested by participants at the previous meeting—but the conversation takes us all over the literary map!

If you enjoy reading, this is the book club for you. We discuss books in a casual setting over coffee and refreshments, and most of us leave with a new book or two on our "to-read" list.

We meet from 10:30 to 11:30 A.M. on the second Tuesday of each month. To find out about upcoming topics and receive a list of the books discussed at each meeting, join our newsletter!

Next meeting: Tuesday, May 14, 2019
Topic: Native Americans

The Grover Beach Community Library is now offering group storytime every Monday at 10:30 a.m. starting on January 11th. Children of all ages are welcome for some stories, songs and surprises in English and Spanish. This is a chance to introduce children to their local library, enjoy a fun story by one of our special readers, and take a big step towards the love of reading and books. Come join us for Storytime!

Heather Houston was one of our eager readers in the Youth Summer Reading Program, finishing a total of 18 books -- 3 times the amount needed to win a prize! Heather is pictured here, with our dedicated children's librarian Maria Dowdy, sharing one of her favorite books at Storytime.
