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 of start reading groups. It’s the perfect time to tell you about Syosset Public Library’s programs for reading groups.
The Book Club in the Bag program has over 50 titles which are available for your book discussions. Each Book Club in a Bag contains 10 copies of the title as well as a binder containing background and critical analysis of the book. Just visit or call the Readers’ Services Desk (516 921-7161 x241) to reserve a Book Club in a Bag. Brochures containing all the titles that are available can be picked up there also.
