Book Club

Looking for a legit book club where people actually talk about the bookJoin us for Collingswood Reads, the Collingswood Public Library’s very own Book Club!

Adults and teens are welcome to gather and 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 and share your thoughts and hear others’ perspectives as well. 

Book club meets once a month, typically the third or fourth Wednesday of the month, from 7-8 PM. To check the schedule, which occasionally varies, check the library’s Events section.  

Sign-up below to get online meeting login details.  The April meeting will be held online via Zoom.  Starting in May, and until further notice, meetings will take place outside [on the porch] at the Scottish Rite from 7-8 pm; masks are optional.  In the case of very poor weather, outside meetings will move online to Zoom.
