Community and Library book clubs can now borrow a set of one title to use in their book club discussions. Contact any branch for the list or view the list on our website under "Readers Corner." You must have a library card to check out the set of books. We do ask that requests are made at least 3 weeks before you need to distribute the book to your members. Because of the high interest in this service, please include 2 alternative titles. Book clubs can be an excellent way to enjoy books more and challenge your mind, and they can also encourage you to read more, or to read books that you might not normally choose.

Salida Library Book Club
Where: Salida Library Story Time Room
When: Tuesday, January 13
           10:00 a.m.

This month's selection is In Time of the Butterflies by Julia Alvarez. Four martyred sisters, symbols of defiant hope in a country shadowed by dictatorship and despair, speak across the decades to tell their stories of everyday horrors under the Dominican dictator Trujullo. Brilliant and heartbreaking story that makes a haunting statement about the human cost of political oppression. Limited copies of the book are available at the Salida Library Circulation Desk. For more information contact Isabel at 543-7315. Book clubs allow community members to expand their knowledge of books and other reading material through meaningful discussions with others.

Turlock Library Book Club
Where: Turlock Library
When: Wednesday, January 7
           10:30 a.m.

This month's selection is Turn of the Mind by Alice La Plante. Dr. Jennifer White wants to come clean about her neighbor's murder, but she is not sure that she can. Slipping gradually into the tangle of Alzheimer's, this once brilliant hand surgeon can only piece together scattershot memories of the woman whose killing has made her a suspect. Alice LaPlante's first novel is more suspenseful than most novels and more subtle than most whodunits. A labyrinth well worth entering. A limited number of copies of the book are available at the library. For more information contact the Turlock Library Reference Desk at 664-8100. Book clubs allow community members to expand their knowledge of books and other reading material through meaningful discussions with others.
