Andrea Pearlstein Personal Development Arts & Literature Clare Bass Pat Rogers These new Adult Book
Discussions will replace all
existing book clubs at the
regional libraries.

Book Clubs at community libraries will be evaluated to see which clubs we may be able to exit from easily and which will take more time. Exit strategies will be different depending on the circumstances. We are purposely calling them book discussions and not "clubs" because they are open to everyone, and not restricted to a select group.

Members may select which discussions to attend based on which books are being
discussed that month. The four types of book discussions will include:

Popular / General Fiction
Literary Fiction
(Classic and/or Contemporary)
Genre (a specific genre or
a rotation of several) x 9 months of programming = adult programs a year There will be a master list of titles from which to choose for each type of discussion.

The list has been developed by the AS Managers and CDS, with input from
the L1s. Our new Book Discussions will follow the regular program schedule to occur nine months out
of the year.

They are planned to start in September, 2013 and all adult librarians will participate. We will focus on having these Book Discussions at the regional libraries because we have adult librarians to lead them and dedicated space in which the discussions will be held.

but not lead)
