Join the Book Club!


The library has started a BOOK CLUB!  The book of the month for December is

LOVE IN THE TIME OF CHOLERA by GABRIEL GARCIA MARQUEZ.   We will meet December 17th at 5:30 pm at the Laguna Public Library.  The book needs to be read prior to December 17th.  A few copies of the book are available at the library for check-out. The book club is a way to share thoughts and opinions of a variety of books with members of the community, recommend new titles, and enjoy the pleasure of reading.  For suggestions of BOOK CLUB titles stop by the library and let us know.  Thanks to those who participated in November.
