Marshall Afternoon Book Club

Once a month, fellow readers meet to discuss a chosen book and related topics. Lively discussions are guaranteed. Refreshments are provided by Friends of the Library. Books are chosen through popular vote by the members of the group and are read from January through November. A summer picnic and a holiday party are always part of the reading year.
