Time for a little spring cleaning of the mind?  You love reading but sometimes wonder what others think about the books you love?   If only you could pick the author's brain?   Why not join a library book club?   

"The North York Central Library Book Club" is run by Libary Staff and we make it easy for you.   We choose the book, get it to you and lead the discussion.  We also invite local authors to lead the group once or twice a year.   Meetings are held at the Library in weekday evenings.  There are usually 10-15 regular members at each meeting and new members are always welcome.

 

We are very excited about the books we will be reading and discussing this spring:

Girls_fall_downGirls Fall Down by Maggie Helwig  -  One Book 2012

Set entirely in Toronto this is a love story and a thriller.  Why are people falling down all over the city?    Will Alex and Susie figure out what's going on and rekindle their love before it's too late?
