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.

Author: Nickolas Butler
We'll be discussing Shotgun Lovesongs by Nickolas Butler. Hank, Leland, Kip and Ronny were all born and raised in the same Wisconsin town—Little Wing—and are now coming into their own (or not) as husbands and fathers. Seamlessly woven into their patchwork is Beth, whose presence among them—both then and now—fuels the kind of passion one comes to expect of lovesongs and rivalries. Winner of the 2014 Midwest Booksellers' Choice Award. 

Butler will be visiting the area as a part of the 2015 Fox Cities Book Festival. Learn more about the festival, April 20-26, by visiting www.foxcitiesbookfestival.org.
