Book Groups - In-Person or Online
No matter your preference of reading format, we have an outlet where you can share your thoughts and insights with other readers.
For those preferring the personal touch, join us on Thursday, November 21st, at 6:30 PM in the small meeting room. We’ll gather to discuss Jennifer Ryan’s The Chilbury Ladies’ Choir. Set in WWII England, the ladies of the choir “carry on singing.” We’re introduced to the ensemble through letters and diary entries, getting to know their home-front struggles. There are plenty of copies available and still time to read.
It’s also time for the next Big Library Read. Join millions of readers worldwide in the world’s largest digital book club. Brought to you by Rakuten OverDrive, I’m Not Dying with You Tonight by Gilly Seagal and Kimberly Jones is available with no holds or waiting. Over the course of one night, two girls with two very different backgrounds must rely on each other to get through the violent race riot that has enveloped their city. Lena has her killer style, her awesome boyfriend, and a plan. She knows she’s going to make it big. Campbell, on the other hand, is just trying to keep her head down and get through the year at her new school. Check out your copy and join the discussion at Wisconsin’s Digital Library: wplc.overdrive.com.
Want to learn how to use your tablet, phone, or laptop with all of our digital offerings? Stop by the library Tuesday afternoon, November 19, and we’ll help get you set up.
Along with a grateful country, the Horicon Public Library would like to remember and thank all veterans for their service this coming Veterans Day, Monday, November 11th. We know full well the commitment and sacrifice it takes for anyone to pledge, not just their work but quite possibly their life for love of country.
Local veterans’ groups are great supporters of their local libraries. We have dovetailing missions, and with their generous donations, libraries have developed a broad collection of materials for all ages. We have books to help you use your VA home loan benefit, navigate the VA, transition from active duty, PTSD self-help or an entertaining thriller in a military setting.
All week we’ll have patriotic drop-in crafts for all ages. Gift your creation as a thank you to a veteran in your life in remembrance and appreciation.
