The Greene County Public Library Online Book Club is a group that meets exclusively online. At the beginning of each month, we’ll unveil a new book. Then on Mondays, we’ll publish blog posts with interesting videos, pictures, and questions meant to enhance your reading experience.

Each book that we’ll read also has a movie. So even if you don’t have time to read a book, you can still contribute to our club by discussing the plot and story with others.

To follow along with the Online Book Club, simply check out each month’s book at your local library location or the ebook through our OverDrive Digital Downloads or Hoopla collections. You can read at your own pace, and join the discussion whenever it’s convenient for you.

We hope you’ll read along with us!
