The author Franz Kafka once stated in a letter to a friend, "A book must be the ax for the frozen sea within us". A Kenyan proverb says, "Having a good discussion is like having riches". In other words, if you feel like chipping away at your soul while learning about what others think and have it all feel like a million bucks, come to the Des Plaines Public Library where we have book discussions every month.
There are two book groups here at DPPL: one that meets the 1st Tuesday of every month at 10am and one that meets the second Thursday at 7.30pm. These are not exclusive book clubs, but ones where anyone is welcome to attend. The schedule of titles and books for the book group are at the 3rd floor Readers Services desk. You may also access the schedule on our website under the tab Events/Programs and then Adult Calendar or you can click here. The 2011 book group schedule will be coming soon.
For every discussion that is completed, we take copies of the book that were lent out to the registrants and add them into the Book Group collection, on the west side of the 3rd floor. So if you are looking to do your own personal book group, this is an excellent location to scout as we have multiples of many titles.
So, if you are free Tuesday mornings or Thursday evenings, feel like reading a book you can sink your teeth into, and delving into a hearty discussion about it: the library is the place for you!
