Fall River Public Library
The Fall River Public Library Book Club meets on the third Wednesday of each month in the Main Library meeting room. Meetings are usually held from 5:30 - 7 p.m., but check our events calendar and Facebook page for any changes or cancellations.
Each month, we meet to discuss the current month's book. Members can also suggest books for the group to read or recommend books they have read recently. There is no membership fee, and book discussions are open to all.
Here is a list of titles chosen for discussion. All books are available through the SAILS library system, so if Fall River's copy is checked out, you can order it from another library and pick it up here. Allow a few extra days for delivery.
