The Friends’ book discussion group Books Sandwiched In is beginning a new season August 2. A variety of participant volunteers lead specific discussions. The group meets on first Wednesdays from 11:30 to 12:30 usually in room C (check the Friends calendar for any changes). The Library has multiple copies of these books for borrowing. All are welcome–bring a sandwich if you wish.
