Book Clubs

The library hosts four book clubs.

  1. The Book Sayers meet on the 3rd Thursday of each month at 1:00 p.m. at the Kimberly Public Library.
  2. The Evening Book Club meets on the 4th Monday of each month at 6:30 p.m. at the Little Chute Public Library.
  3. Books & Brews is a new book club for the 20's & 30's crowd. We meet the first Monday of the month at 5:30 p.m. at Seth's Coffee at 106 E Main Street, Little Chute.
  4. The Great Beginnings Book Club is a group which meets on the 2nd Tuesday of each month at 10:30 a.m. at the Kimberly Public Library.

New members are always encouraged to attend. The group typically chooses a book to discuss at the following meeting. The subject varies widely from fiction to nonfiction, light to esoteric reading. The groups pride themselves on being a "reader driven" rather than a "leader driven" and choices are made based on titles that appeal to them at the time. Registration is not necessary and is open to adults.
