Novels and Nibbles Book Club

Novels & Nibbles: A Virtual Book Club

Begins this Thursday, April 2 @ 6:30 p.m. via Zoom. Open to Adults. Looking for some intelligent interaction during this time of social distancing? Join us for our first session of “Novels and Nibbles”– a virtual book club where instead of reading the same book, we come together to discuss our current favorites and give each other reading recommendations. Grab a snack and share the titles that are keeping you sane and happy; we’ll swap ideas for the best literary escapes. Registration is required as spaces are limited. Please email us at info@scrantonlibrary.org to receive your Zoom login information. We look forward to seeing you there!
