Join us for a new book discussion group called ‘Timeless Tales’! This group, facilitated by Reference Librarian Jeff Klapes (klapes@noblenet.org) will focus on classic literature from ancient to modern, from Austen and Dickens to contemporary award winners. The group will generally meet on the third or fourth Saturday of each month.

Copies of the next month’s title will be available at the previous meeting or behind the Circulation Desk. Audiobook and eBook copies are available on Overdrive or Hoopla.
