Book Discussion Group

The Library leads group book discussion groups. Groups meet on Wednesday from 10:30 a.m. to 12:30 p.m. in the Library conference room.  Please register in advance so that we ensure that we have at least four copies of the discussion books available.  You can check them out any time at the circulation desk for a total of three weeks. You may also order a copy from other Cochise County libraries or through interlibrary loan. To ensure the exact version, please provide the ISBN. Copies may also be available in electronic versions through Overdrive.

Here is the current line-up, lead by Nancy Williams. Ms. Williams has taught English at the University of Southern California; California State University, Northridge; and community colleges in California and Oregon.
