Lifelong Readers Book Club
The Lifelong Readers Book Club is a collaboration between the Colusa County Free Library Literacy Program and the Friends of the Library. Every month, the Library Book Club participants select a book to read for the following month’s meeting where one member volunteers to lead a discussion. Everyone is welcome and there is no cost.
The LitLovers website is dedicated to books and book clubs. This “well-read online community” has ideas for starting your own book club, suggestions and activities for established book clubs, and many other resources for readers, including information about this year’s Virginia Read.
