What is Brown Bag Book Club?
It’s a group of ladies who enjoy chatting about all things book-related, hosted by Pam Federspiel and Whitney Wooters.
It’s called Brown Bag Book Club because when the book club started in 1992, everyone brought their own lunch in a brown paper bag. Now, the library serves refreshments! Also, if the book club likes the books they read, they are turned into book kits that anyone can check out to use for their book club, and they are kept in brown bags.
How it works:
Mondays from 12:00 PM – 1:00 PM and
