Montgomery Locals 9/4/2019
Rejoice, fellow book lovers! The Montgomery Area Public Library is starting a Book Club for adults this month. The first meeting will be held at the library at noon on September 14. Librarian Nicole Loffredo said the first meeting will welcome new members over the age of 18 who
will come together to introduce themselves and discuss what types of books they like to read. Then members will choose what book they want to read. Options such as genre, theme, and author will be considered.
The library has had a number of fun activities all through the year, and this is a great opportunity for enthusiastic readers to come together and enjoy each other’s company and a mutual love and appreciation of books.
