Book Clubs

The Lakewood Public Library, for all its diversions, is a place for books and reading. Those with a desire to share their thoughts and experiences might consider dropping in at one of our regular book clubs. The long-running Booked for Murder Book Club is a club for lovers of murder, mystery and mayhem. The Knit & Lit Book Club offers a forum for those who like to tackle challenging fiction and serious stitchery at the same time.

The Book Clubs meet in the Main Library Basement Meeting Room once a month. Check out our website or program guide to discover which books we’ll be discussing next.
