Open For Discussion

Interested in joining? Contact Nicolette by email or call (269) 585-8714

Open for Discussion is a monthly drop-in book discussion for adults, and we always welcome new members! We select a mix of fiction and nonfiction reads, and our informal discussions last one hour.

We meet at the library at 10:30 AM on the third Tuesday of every month September through May with a break in December. See below for previous titles, and check out our events calendar for upcoming reads!
