East Kingston Library News

EAST KINGSTON - The East Kingston Public Library sponsors a book group which meets monthly with Tracy Waldron, our director, serving as moderator. It is a diverse group and all are welcome. We usually feature the book we are reading at the check- out counter. Cricket Hill has a very active group too and a number of smaller groups of friends meet to share books as an evening out.

We are happy to locate multiple copies of a title for your book group or help you with book suggestions.

The NH State Library also offers a program called “Reads to Go”. Various libraries in the state own book bags with multiple copies of a title. Book discussion questions are featured in the bag as well as an author biography and other resource materials. A complete list of titles can be found at www.nhlibrarians,org/reads/rtg.

The donation of a book bag might be a great way to celebrate a family milestone or a loved one. Visit the web site to see what NH book groups are reading.

If you enjoy doing your reading with online friends, you might like www.GoodReads.com or www.Shelfari.com. Both these sites give you the opportunity to keep track of your reading, write reviews and find other readers with similar interests. You can keep tabs on titles you have read, make note of books you want to read and find titles and authors whose work is similar to your favorites.

Come into the East Kingston Public Library soon to join or start a book group of your own. For more information, visit www.eastkingstonlibrary.org or call 603-642-83333.
