Reader’s Choice Book Club

Wythe County Public Library

Don’t like to be told what to read? Perfect! This book club gives you the freedom to read whatever book you’d like. Then meet up with fellow avid readers on the 4th Wednesday of each month at the Wythe County Public Library for some lively book discussions. Other members may have a wonderful book recommendation for you, and you may have one for them in return. Let’s talk!
And as a treat, the library will show a western movie at the end of each meeting.
