BookClubRAW2.jpgThe West Liberty Public Library hosts two book clubs in the library. In order to join our email list for The Page Turners, email Ali at aoepping@wlpl.org to get the information needed before each club meets.

Our book clubs are very easygoing and great for anyone who wants to read diversely, talk about books, or just get together with a fun group of people. 


  • If you want to read the current month's book but don't want to attend the meeting, that is perfectly fine! 
  • Reading the entire book is not necessary; if you don't finish but still want to attend the meeting, feel free to come! (Just be open to the fact that we will have a full discussion which will include spoilers)
  • Join at any time! Whether you only want to attend one meeting to see what it's like or attend at random, you're more than welcome! 

Book club days (minus Silent Reading Club) will have two sessions; one at 12pm and one at 6pm.



Silent Reading Club

This club typically meets on the first & third Thursday of the month at 5:30pm.

This month's 'meetings' will be on April 4 and April 18 at 5:30pm.

Unlike a regular book club, Silent Reading Club is about bringing your own book to read in silence but still being with friends in the comfort of the library! All ages are welcome to join in; no sign-up is required!


The Page Turners

This club typically meets on the second Thursday of the month. There are two sessions you can attend; 12pm or 6pm.

The meeting is on April 11 at 12 p.m. or 6 p.m. in the library.
Every month The Page Turners meet to discuss the latest and greatest works of fiction and non-fiction. Books are available for checkout from the library.

This month we will be reading The Hobbit by J.R.R. Tolkien. According to goodreads.com, Bilbo Baggins is a hobbit who enjoys a comfortable, unambitious life, rarely traveling any farther than his pantry or cellar. But his contentment is disturbed when the wizard Gandalf and a company of dwarves arrive on his doorstep one day to whisk him away on an adventure. They have launched a plot to raid the treasure hoard guarded by Smaug the Magnificent, a large and very dangerous dragon. Bilbo reluctantly joins their quest, unaware that on his journey to the Lonely Mountain he will encounter both a magic ring and a frightening creature known as Gollum.
