Friday Morning Pageturners - A Short Story Discussion Group

Twice a month on Friday mornings you may hear laughter and spirited conversation coming from the second floor of the library. Those sounds are coming from The Friday Morning Pageturners, a short story discussion group! We get together on the 2nd and 4th Friday mornings of each month from 10:30 - 11:30 am.

At each meeting we discuss a different short story, chosen by a member of the group or the discussion moderator, Nancy Tusinski the Adult Services Coordinator at the library. Stories are provided by the library, you may join anytime, and come as often as you are able. This may be once a month, once every couple of months, or every time we meet! If you'd love to be part of a book discussion group, but don't have the time to read a book each month, the Friday Morning Pageturners might be the group for you. Pick up a story at the Main Desk and join in!
