March Book Clubs at Northwest Branch Library

Good news readers, there are several book clubs that meet regularly at the Northwest Branch Library. Did you know that there are several benefits associated with actively attending a book club? Book clubs have been known to decrease stress and are good for those customers who are of retirement age. Book Clubs can help participants gain new perspective on an issue, make new friends and to hopefully become more involved in their community. Also, if you're an aspiring writer, regular book club participation can help improve or expand your own writing skills. Perhaps the best reason to particpiate in an active book club is that it can give a reader the push they need to finish that book.
