Book Group

The Island Bay Library Book Discussion Group meets in the library from 12 noon on the first Wednesday of each month. A group of locals get together to share what they have been reading lately. There are no set books and a wide variety of fiction and non-fiction is recommended - a great chance to share a cup of tea or coffee, meet some fellow bibliophiles and discover some new reads.

Contact Donna if you'd like to know more or enquire at Island Bay Library.
