Book Group Information

Book Clubs

Lafayette READS! is a quarterly reading and discussion group, under the umbrella of  Lafayette Public Library. We select books that are not only great reads, but that are relevant to today‚Äôs issues. Informal discussions are open to all, and focus on the book itself, as well as on ways in which the story sheds light on the contemporary world.  Lafayette READS! covers both fiction and nonfiction, new books and rediscovered classics.

Independent book clubs meet at the library and new members are always welcome.
