Book Clubs

The library hosts two book clubs.

  1. The afternoon club meets on the 3rd Thursday of each month at 1:30 p.m. at the Kimberly Public Library.
  2. The evening club meets on the 4th Monday of each month at 6:30 p.m.

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 group prides itself on being a "reader driven" rather than a "leader driven" group and choices are made based on titles that appeal to them at the time. Registration is not necessary and is open to adults.

In a series of evocative remembrances accompanied by a treasure trove of vintage family photos, Mamminga takes us to Wake Robin, the cabin her grandparents built in 1929 on Big Spider Lake near Hayward, on land adjacent to Moody's Camp. Along the way she preserves the spirit and cultural heritage of a vanishing era, conveying the heart of a place and the community that gathered there.

The Afternoon Book Club will be discussing Clara and Mr. Tiffany by Susan Vreeland. Louis Comfort Tiffany staffs his studio with female artisans--a decision that protects him from strikes by the all-male union--but refuses to employ women who are married. Lucky for him, Clara Driscoll's romantic misfortunes insure that she can continue to craft the jewel-toned glass windows and lamps that catch both her eye and her imagination.
