Great Reads Book Club
Great Reads Book Club is an adult reading/discussion group sponsored by the Friends of the Macomb Public Library. It meets from September through May (except for November and December) on the second Wednesday of each month at 7:00 p.m. The book club will meet at the meeting room in the library.
All interested readers are invited to attend. Members are encouraged to read the scheduled book before the meeting to make the discussion more meaningful. This is an organization with no dues, no officers, no by-laws and just one purpose—reading and discussing good books.
A copy of the selected books can be ordered at the New Copperfields Book Service on the Macomb Square. Titles not owned by Macomb Public Library may also be requested through inter-library loan. Please try to submit requests at least 4 weeks before a title’s discussion date. Also, if the books is available as an eBook, our library will order a copy.
