The library hosts four book clubs.
- The Book Sayers meet on the 3rd Thursday of each month at 1:00 p.m. at the Kimberly Public Library.
- The Evening Book Club meets on the 4th Monday of each month at 6:30 p.m. at the Little Chute Public Library.
- Books & Brews is a new book club for the 20's & 30's crowd. We meet the first Monday of the month at 5:30 p.m. at Seth's Coffee at 106 E Main Street, Little Chute.
- The Great Beginnings Book Club is a group which meets on the 2nd Tuesday of each month at 10:30 a.m. at the Kimberly Public Library.
New members are always encouraged to attend. The group typically chooses a book to discuss at the following meeting. The subject varies widely from fiction to nonfiction, light to esoteric reading. The groups pride themselves on being a "reader driven" rather than a "leader driven" and choices are made based on titles that appeal to them at the time. Registration is not necessary and is open to adults.
Meet us at Seth's Coffee for a new book club for the 20's & 30's crowd. We'll be discussing Everything I Never Told You by Celeste Ng.
"Lydia is dead. But they don't know this yet" . . . So begins the story of this exquisite debut novel, about a Chinese American family living in 1970s small-town Ohio. A profoundly moving story of family, history, and the meaning of home, Everything I Never Told You is both a gripping page-turner and a sensitive family portrait, exploring the divisions between cultures and the rifts within a family as they struggle, all their lives, to understand one another.
Join us as we discuss The Maid’s Version by Daniel Woodrell. Alma DeGeer Dunahew works as the maid for a prominent citizen and his family in West Table, Missouri. In 1929 her scandalous, beloved younger sister is one of the 42 killed in an explosion at the local dance hall. Who is to blame? Alma thinks she knows the answer--and that its roots lie in a dangerous love affair.
We’ll be discussing Leaving Time by Jodi Picoult. Leaving Time is a love story – love between mother and child, love between soulmates, and love between elephants—told from a variety of narrators, all of whom are broken and lost. Jenna is searching for answers to the disappearance of her mother, and seeks the help of a retired police detective and a psychic. Alice, Jenna’s mom, disappeared after a tragic accident during her work at the elephant sanctuary. The book is an ode to motherhood in all its forms.
We'll be discussing The Twelve Tribes of Hattie by Ayana Mathis. A debut of extraordinary distinction: through the life of her unforgettable heroine, Hattie Shepherd, Mathis tells the story of the children of the Great Migration, a story of bitterness and love, and the promise of a new North, built on the backs of Hattie's children.
