Friends of the Encino-Tarzana Library


Book Clubs


The Friends have been sponsoring two book clubs:

Page Turners is going on hiatus over the holiday months. There will be no meetings in November and December 2019. The club will resume sometime in January 2020. An update will be sent to club members around that time. Ellen or the librarian can be contacted for any information.

You can sign up in the library to receive notices about club activities - ask a librarian.

Delve Into History was a book club focused on historical non-fiction. The participants suggested titles and shared the discussion. We hope to restart this club soon. For past readings, see below.   Jump to Delve Into History
