One of the best resources at Cecil County Public Library is our book discussions. Each branch has monthly discussions of varying genres and subjects which is a great way to connect with the community.
One of our newest approaches is an adjustment to our traditional book discussions at the library. This summer, the Chesapeake City Branch and Elkton Central Library will hosting discussions in the community.
A new book discussion group called “Pageturners” is hosted in Elkton. The club’s premise is for participants to bring a book you’re excited about – one that you can’t stop recommending to other people. Pageturners is for readers to expand their knowledge of what’s out there, recommended by other avid readers.
Chesapeake City is hosting a “Summer Vacation Book Club” and each discussion will be held off-site at a local restaurant. Each book chosen is set in a different country, so it is perfect for those who didn’t have time for an international vacation. You can enjoy a staycation while still exploring the world around us.
If you are looking for personalized reading recommendations, try our Bookmate service and we’ll match you up with some great books! Fill out the survey online or print a copy below and one of our skilled librarians will review your responses and pick out four books compatible with your reading tastes.
