Club Read

Club Read is West Des Moines Library adult book discussion group. Books are distributed at the meetings. A few copies of the book are available at the First Floor Service Desk or you may bring your own.

The group meets on the following Tuesdays at 2 pm & 6:30 pm unless otherwise noted

Club Read meets in the Community Room.

*Club Read Socials are held in April, August, and December. Instead of reading the same book, we’ll talk about what we’ve all been reading since the last social (your top three titles). Bring an appetizer or dessert to share. Newcomers welcome!
