Each month there’s a new book selection, but there’s never a meeting. Copies of each month’s book may be picked up on the first of the month at the library’s front desk, while supplies last. Feel like people-ing just a bit? Can't contain all the feels this month's read is giving you? Join the Facebook group: https://www.facebook.com/groups/introvertreads/
