Program Description

Event Details

What do the terms romance, mystery, fiction, sci-fi bring to mind? Have you ever wondered if there is more to these terms than what meets the eye? Are you looking to expand your reading horizons?

Every season, roughly every 3 months, we move on to explore the ins and outs of a new genre. For the Winter (November, December, January), we will be getting cozy with Romance!

Our November book is Close Enough to Touch by Colleen Oakley.

This program has limited space and requires registration. After registration, you will receive a confirmation email with the link and password to the Zoom meeting.   

After you register, copies can be picked up at the Central Library pick-up window. Books will only be given to those who are on the registration list (please wait until the day after you register to pick up your book to allow staff to update their list).
