Inspiring and supporting lifelong learning and the love of reading

Book Clubs

The library hosts the following book clubs for adults:

New members are always encouraged to attend. No registration or fees are required. The subject varies widely from fiction to nonfiction, light to esoteric reading. The three adult book club 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.

The library also hosts:

  • Chapter Chat -- a book group for 4th - 6th grade students, meets on the 2nd Tuesday of each month (October through May) after school from 4:00-4:30 p.m.at the Kimberly Public Library.
  • Teen Book Club -- meets on the 2nd Monday of the month from 6:00pm to 6:30pm at the Little Chute Public Library. Join us for a a great book discussion, pizza, and friends.

Kimberly Public Library

Join The Book Sayers on the third Thursday of each month at 1:00 pm at the Kimberly Public Library to discuss a variety of fiction and non-fiction selections.  The book we will be discussing is The Readers of Broken Wheel Recommend by Katarina Bivald ; translated from the Swedish by Alice Menzies.   

Broken Wheel, Iowa, has never seen anyone like Sara, who traveled all the way from Sweden just to meet her pen pal, Amy. When she arrives, however, she finds that Amy's funeral has just ended. Luckily, the townspeople are happy to look after their bewildered tourist—even if they don't understand her peculiar need for books. Marooned in a farm town that's almost beyond repair, Sara starts a bookstore in honor of her friend's memory.
