Friends of the Encino-Tarzana Library

Book Clubs

The Friends have been sponsoring two book clubs:

The Page Turners Book Club next meeting is Saturday, July 20 at 2PM in the Library meeting room. Future meetings will usually be on the Third Saturday of the month. All book-lovers in the community are welcome to the meetings to enjoy in-depth discussions on books and authors. The club will read genres from fiction to non-fiction, best-sellers to classics, as well as explore diverse and ethnic authors.

The book for July 20 is Dreams from My Father by Barack Obama. Copies are being held at the Reference Desk for those planning on joining the Book Club. -  July Meeting Flyer

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