The George Mackie Library Book Club celebrated 20-plus years together this week.
The book club has read 12 books per year since conception, meeting at the George Mackie Library on the second Tuesday of each month to discuss the corresponding title.
Although library records indicate the George Mackie Library Book Club has been in existence for 20 years, original member Roslyn Simon says the group began in 1988.
Regardless, the current book club coordinator Carol Mores finds the longevity of the group amazing.
The group regularly sees six to 10 attendees each month reading titles they might not normally have chosen on their own.
Twenty years ago the North Delta group was reading One True Thing by Anna Quindlen.
On March 9, members met to discuss An Irish Country Doctor by Patrick Taylor.
In recognition of each group’s long history with Fraser Valley Regional Library, library staff provided tea and goodies at their last meeting.
The library welcome new members. Meet fellow book lovers and discuss a selected title.
Future titles will be Language of Flowers, Love Anthony, 100 Year Old Man Who Climbed Out Windows and more.
Call 604-594-8155 or visit the library (8840 112 St.) to learn which book is being discussed this each. Copies of the current month’s book are available at the library.
The Fraser Valley Regional Library Book Discussion Groups Collection currently has 325 titles on their inventory and supplies a total of 145 book clubs.
