October is National Reading Group Month: Meet Our Book Group Doctor!

Are your book group meetings beginning to feel a little bit sluggish?  Do you suffer from anxiety when it’s your turn to choose your group’s book?  If so, then we can help.  Visit the Book Group Doctor!

October is National Reading Group Month.  All month we will have a special display on Main Street of some of our most popular book group titles, to spark your group's imagination. In addition, all month a Library book group team member will be available every day from Monday to Friday to talk with you about all things book related.  You’ll find us on Main Street Monday, Wednesday, and Friday from 12-1pm, Tuesday from 7-8pm, and Thursday from 11am– 2pm.

In subsequent months the Book Group Doctor will be on Main Street on Thursdays from 11am - 12pm. And of course, you don’t have to belong to a book group to join in on the conversation! The Book Group Doctor, and our entire Readers' Advisory team, are always available to chat about the latest books, the classics, or whatever you're reading.

Jen List of Wonderful for 2013

Here is the list thus far for 2013.  They are not in any particular order.  That would feel like asking me to name my favorite child!

Book Groups

For registration, book selection, reservations, guides, reviews and leader training contact the Book Group Team: Marianne Paterniti and Pat Sheary.

Q & A

Are you a member of a book group? The library can provide reader's guides, books in a bag and advice from our bookgroup experts Marianne and Pat.

What are books in a bag?

Books in a bag are bags of 10 books with a reader's guide that your book group can check out for six weeks.

Can my book group register with the library?

Yes! Just register online. One or more members of your book group needs to be a resident of Darien. Books in a bag are available only to book groups that are registered with us.

Can I request a title for books in a bag?

Yes! We ask that you work with us at least two weeks before your group needs the book.

But we really want to read the hottest bestseller!

While we try to maintain a current collection of hot books, if you do not see what you are looking for, please ask!
