Davis Memorial Library

Book Groups are informal gatherings. Members select  the titles that they will read throughout the year, then meet each month to discuss the book they have just read. The library staff is happy to help anyone interested in starting a book group.

Red Tent Book Group

Printable List

The Red Tent Group chose their name after being unanimously delighted by Anita Diamont’s book of that title.

They meet the fourth Tuesday of each month at a member's home at 7:00 p.m.

"The Red Tent Book Group is currently at capacity and unable to accept new members. For help starting a book group of your own please speak to the library staff."
