October Book Club Meetings

Hello Readers!

Listed below are the selections for October! Due to the low number of copies and high number of requests for the St Cloud Book Club's October selection How to be an American Housewife by Margaret Dilloway, we've decided to change it to another novel. This novel has enough copies for the group, so club members should have enough time to read it before the discussion. There are ways you can help your fellow members. Please return the book when you are finished reading it. We know some members like to keep the book until the day of the meeting, but unfortunately, it's not possible when so many are trying to read the same book. The Library would love to order enough copies to cover everyone twice over, but due to budget constraints, this is not possible at this time.

If you have a friend who does not receive this email newsletter, please let them know of the change.

We appreciate your understanding and hope that you continue to enjoy the book clubs.
