Book Discussions and Book Discussion Groups

Looking for a book group? The librarians at the 2nd Floor information desk may be able to assist you in finding one that will suit.  We keep a list of local area book groups and a list of electronic resources that book groups may find useful.

From time to time there are also special events that include book discussions, such as Mountain View Reads or the current Silicon Valley Reads 2012.
