Reading Groups and Book Clubs

Vermillion is a small community, but it seems there are many book groups in the area and that’s good news! The Vermillion Public Library has an Adult Book Group and a Teen Book Group that each meet several times a year. Do you belong to a book club or reading group in the area? Perhaps you are interested in joining a group to meet people and share in the discussion of new books. Let us be a resource and gather information to connect readers to one another. If you are part of a book group, e-mail us at vplstaff@sdln.net and let us know the name of your group, along with name and info for a contact person. If you’d like, tell us a little about the focus or membership of your group and we can share the information with the community. Do you know that the Library has a very nice range of Book Club Bags for Adults and for Teens that are
ready-made for reading groups? Each bag has 10 copies of the book, along with a discussion guide….ready to go! Check out the lists of available books under the Adults and Teens tabs on this website.
