National Reading Group Month was launched in October of 2007 by the Women’s National Book Association in an effort to formally recognize the benefits of shared reading and to encourage more people to join or start reading groups. We here at R & R would like to help the cause:
Have you always wanted to start a group of your own? This could be the time to do it and the Syosset Public Library can help. We have books to help you start a group and books that suggest titles that make for good group discussion. The literature databases to be found on our website, also provide a wealth of information about books your group can choose. And of course, there’s our “Book Club in a Bag” program. Each bag contains multiple copies of a selected title, discussion questions, and biographical /critical information- every thing you need to make your discussion a success!
Visit the Readers’ Advisory desk on the second floor to find out more and get tips for getting your club up and running from our experienced staff of librarians.
