Library-Sponsored Book Discussion Groups
- LafayetteREADs! is a quarterly reading and discussion group, under the umbrella of Lafayette Public Library. We select fiction and nonfiction books that are not only great reads, but that are relevant to today’s issues.
- Teen Collection Connection volunteers meet monthly to discuss and recommend books and more.
- Books & Brews YA Book Club (Ages 21+) at Odd13 Brewing - this club is designed for adults 21+ in Lafayette and surrounding areas who like to read Young Adult novels. We'll read a different YA book each month, and discuss it while sipping on our favorite adult beverage. Drop by any month that grabs your interest! Find upcoming dates on the Library calendar.
- Sign up (or unsubscribe) for the email list about upcoming Library-sponsored book talks or author events.
