Book Club Information

The Windsor Public Library facilitates two virtual book clubs currently.

Our Virtual Book Club meets on the second Thursday of the month from 2 to 3 pm over Zoom. If you are interested in the current title, please call the Reference Desk at 860-285-1918. If you are interested in attending, please register on our Adult Program page.

Our Virtual Cookbook Book Club meets on the fourth Monday of the month from 1 to 2 pm over Zoom. We invite you to download the cookbook with Hoopla, make something out of it, and share your results. If you are interested in the current title, please call the Reference Desk at 860-285-1918. If you are interested in attending, please register on our Adult Program page.

If your book club knows exactly what they want to read, we can help. Just contact our Book Club Coordinator, Danielle Tapper and she will get you set up! One thing to consider is using one of our book club kits – these include ten copies of great titles and are available to check out for six weeks. Book Club Kits Flyer

As sort of a social media for readers, Goodreads is the world’s largest site for book recommendations. Readers can add books to virtual shelves that they want to read as well as post reviews and ratings for books they have already read. Add friends and share what you are reading with them, enter giveaways for free books, play trivia, and more.
