COVID-19 Update: All Programs are moving online for the summer. See details below.
Looking for a legit book club where people actually talk about the book? Join us for Collingswood Reads, the Collingswood Public Library’s very own Book Club!
Adults and teens are welcome to gather in the library’s Peter Childs meeting room to discuss the monthly book pick, meet neighbors, and munch on snacks. We read a variety of genres, including mystery, fantasy, historical fiction, and science fiction, not to mention selections from nonfiction. We invite you to come share your thoughts and hear others’ perspectives as well.
Book club meets once a month, typically the fourth Wednesday of the month, from 7-8 PM. To check the schedule, which occasionally varies due to holidays (and during Covid-19), ask our staff or visit the library’s events calendar at www.collingswoodlib.org/eventcalendar.

August 12, 2020 at 7:00 PM: Exit West by Mohsin Hamid
Exit West is about a young couple, Saeed and Nadia, who live in an unnamed city undergoing civil war and finally have to flee, using a system of magical doors, which lead to different locations around the globe. A New York Times bestseller, an astonishingly visionary love story that imagines the forces that drive ordinary people from their homes into the uncertain embrace of new lands.
