Book Club

If you have an interest in leading a Book Club please contact the Library Director so this can be arranged.

Book Choices

Suggested model: Everyone suggests two books one month, and then everyone votes for their top choices the following month. Book choices may be categorized as winter books for October through May, and summer books for June through September. If your book is chosen, you may be the designated facilitator for that book’s discussion.

  • Do choose books which you have read or seriously looked through to gauge length and ease.
  • Do mix genres. A steady diet of one thing can be dull, dull, dull. Try interspersing fiction—current and classic—with nonfiction: poetry, history, or biography.
  • Do choose books which have been out for at least a year, so they will be readily available.
  • Choose books which are less dense in page number and easier to complete. For nonfiction especially, consider shorter books.
  • Diversify interests. Reading a book someone “just loves” can lead to hurt feelings—like inviting people into your home to critique your decor. Ouch. Best to stay on neutral territory.


Vose Library book club participants may determine the frequency and duration of its meetings. Typically one hour is sufficient and can be arranged with the Library Director. 

The person who suggested the book becomes the discussion facilitator.

  • The facilitator’s job is to help keep the discussion going and on track (short presentations are welcome but not necessary.
  • We take turns going around the room, allowing each member to talk about his or her experience reading the book. 
  • A one-minute or less blurb from each person before general discussion is requested.
  • Members who haven’t read the book, please come anyway. Not everyone can finish every book, but non-readers may still have valuable insights.
  • Come to have fun and engage in the process of shared exploration.
