Peninsula libraries host book talks in August

The North Olympic Library System hosts four Book Discussion Group meetings each month. Second Saturday and Wednesday Evening groups will meet in person outside as noted below, and will move indoors in the case of inclement weather; other groups will continue to meet on Zoom.

Register at, or call or visit the library for assistance.

All are welcome – join every month or just drop in when you’d like. Paperback copies of the titles will be available for pick up any time after the current month’s discussions at the Sequim Library, 630 N. Sequim Ave., or the Port Angeles Library, 2210 S. Peabody St., on a first-come, first-served basis.

Copies in other formats such as large print, book on CD and eBook may also be available to request through the NOLS catalog.
