October Book Club Meeting

Kia ora, book-lovers!

Our next meeting will be held at Te Aroha Library, 4pm on Friday October 5th, when we’ll be discussing ‘Diary-themed’ reading.  You can raid either the fiction or non-fiction shelves for this one – and to make things even easier for you, at Te Aroha Library we have a little list of possible titles!  Having said that, there are heaps of possibilities in all three libraries that you can find with a little shelf-pottering, or simply enter ‘diary’ as a search term in the online catalogue.

 This promises to be a really interesting theme.  Have fun with it!

September Book Club

Book Group is on tomorrow at Te Aroha library at 4pm. We are venturing  out of the fiction pond and into the non-fiction sea.  Specially, you are invited to dip into into the following sections: The 300's, 500's and 800's. The 300's encompassess such subjects as politics, true crime, military, law and relationships. The 500's are a wonderful melange or natural history, geology, maths and science, while the 800's are the go-to section for all things literary - poetry, drama, author biographies and useful writing guides.

Dive right in and see what you come up with! See you tomorrow!
