Join a book club

The library offers three different book clubs you can join! The READ Harder Book Club is meant to encourage readers to explore settings, characters, formats, genres, and perspectives that might be outside of their reading norms. Each month members select a reading challenge to complete. The Riverwalk Book Club is a themed book discussion group that meets at the library and walks along the beautiful Skagit River. Café con libros es nuestro nuevo club de lectura en español. Compartimos nuestros pensamientos sobre el libro de mes y disfrutamos de café, pan dulce y comunidad!
