Book group is go, for 2-0-2-0!

Hello, readers!

A goodly group of you made it to the first meeting of the year last Friday, to chew the fat over the books you'd been reading over the holidays – and there were some goodies! Sandra Brown's 'Tailspin' was hotly recommended, especially if you like a clever plot with plenty of twists and turns. Lynda LaPlante's 'Tennison' was next on the list, described as 'a great mystery story'.


The next meeting has a topic with a difference. The theme is 'Celebrity' – so you can read a novel about, for example, someone struggling with fame, or you can grab a biography of a well-known person (check out our 'Walk a Mile in Their Shoes' biography display for some great ideas), or read a book written by a celebrity – Graham Norton, perhaps, or Miranda Hart? And if that all just seems too hard, come and see us at the desk, and we'll find something that fits the bill!

The next meeting will be held on Friday 6th March, 4pm here at Te Aroha Library. Have fun choosing your books – I think this is going to be a really interesting one.


All the best
The Team at Te Aroha Library
