Joining a book club is a great way to connect with your neighbors and find a community of fellow readers. Gunnison County Libraries facilitates book clubs in both Gunnison and Crested Butte locations. They are free and open to anyone to join.
How it works: Book clubs meet on a recurring basis, every month, to discuss a title the group has all read, often over light snacks. Copies of books are placed on hold for book club participants and are available to check out at the library. Titles for the next month’s meeting are announced a month before. They will also be available in e-edition, audiobook, large print, etc.
For those who like to imbibe in books, beverages or both! This group meets the second Tuesday of every month from 5:30-7 pm at local watering holes. They read mainly contemporary fiction, with a few non-fiction titles every once in a while.
*July 14: The Professor and the Mad Man by Simon Winchester
*August 11: The Hanalei House by Bob Puglisi (Author will participate in discussion)
*virtual meetings. Free copies of the book are available to participants.

**This group is currently paused due to CoVid-19 but we recommend you join a virtual BnB session**
This group is for those who enjoy curling up with a novel (or a classic) and sipping a cup of hot tea. Meetings are the third Thursday of every month from 2-3 pm at the 2nd floor of the Crested Butte Library, or on the benches out front, weather dependent.
Upcoming meet-ups and reads:
June 18: The Nickel Boys by Colson Whitehead
July 16: The World That We Knew by Alice Hoffman
August 20: Ask Again, Yes by Mary Beth Keane
September 17: The Secrets We Kept by Lara Prescott

This newly formed group has just jumped into the book club scene in Gunnison. They read contemporary fiction, with a taste for the suspense or thriller genre and meet on the fourth Wednesday of every month at 4 pm.
