The East Providence Public Library has been hosting at least one book club for more than 20 years! Now we host five! Each book club meets once a month and the discussions last approximately 1 1/2 hours. Books are available for participants through the library. Call 434-2453 ext. 17006, email firstname.lastname@example.org, or stop in to see Joyce to learn if one of our book clubs is for you. New members are always welcome to monthly discussions. The year’s reading list is distributed at the September discussion.
