The Alliance Public Library Book Club 100th Book Celebration

Alliance, NE – The Alliance Public Library Book Club is celebrating its 100th book! On Tuesday, August 27 at 1:00 p.m., we will share discussion of “Beyond the Titanic” by local author and Book Club member, Mary Wernke. For this “100th Book Celebration”, we will bring snack items related to our favorite books and charter members will share a brief reflection of memories. In addition, there will be a display of photos, news clippings and book art.

The current APL Book Club began in September 2010, featuring “Peace Like a River” by Leif Enger. Twelve people gathered to begin this literary adventure with Ronda Larson, Outreach Services Librarian and Adult Services Librarian. The APL Book Club meets monthly to share their insights about each book selection. Of this first group, several people continue to be active, and many new people have joined. All adults are welcome to attend the APL Book Club meets on the fourth Tuesday of each month at 1:.00 p.m.; the only exception to this schedule is the November/December gathering, which is decided by the group. Throughout the years, they explore many different authors and genres of books. In the selection process, members recommend book titles, which are voted upon by the group. It is not necessary to read the book if you want to listen to a great discussion; however, if time allows, the book selections are time well spent!

We cherish our walk down memory lane as we look forward to the next 100 books that we will share! For more information, please contact Cynthia Horn, Outreach and Adult Services Librarian at 762-1387.
