Patrons of the McPherson Public Library will have several book group options to choose from starting in September, including a new one.

The Ladies Book Group will meet monthly on the second Tuesday from 6:30 to 7:30 p.m. This group features popular and classic fiction titles. Books are provided to participants and are available at the service desk for check out.

A new option is the Silent Book Group. This group will meet on the third Thursday of each month from 6:30 to 7:30 p.m. Participants first meet for a few minutes to enjoy a warm drink and share book recommendations, and then they settle in to read in the quiet of the library.

This group allows participants to enjoy reading a book of their choice with no pressure to finish or discuss an assigned book.

The third option is the Small World Book Group, which will meet on the fourth Wednesday of the month from 10 to 10:45 a.m. The books featured in this group include non-fiction titles, current events, and memoirs. Books are also provided at the service desk for this group.

Stop by the library to join either the Ladies Group or the Small World Group, or both. No registration is necessary for the Silent Book Group.
