Not Your Ordinary Book Group

We read popular fiction, edgy and uncensored, and meet once a month on Thursday nights at 6:00 pm.  This is NOT your traditional literary fiction book group.  All books are chosen by our members, with an initial online vote to narrow down our choices.  The final books are decided in person at the meetings.

The Usual Suspects

Mystery lovers continue to discuss this popular genre through the Spring!

This group is open to the public and registration is not required; feel free to drop in at anytime! For more information, contact the Library's Business Manager, Tina Hustus here.

The June book is Someone is Watching by Joy Fielding.

The group meets the FIRST Wednesday of every month at 5:30 pm in the Library's Board Room. Please check back for updates.

Lit Chicks Book Group

Our Lit Chicks Book Group is the library's more traditional book group.  Led by Maggie, one of our reference librarians, the group meets the first Tuesday of every month at 2:00 pm.  All the reads are chosen by Maggie and lean toward contemporary and literary fiction.  She is very conscious of providing members of the group with shorter reads that also have interesting topic matters to discuss at the meetings. Please be aware that participants are not limited to females, but the book selections may be decidedly feminine. Like the services of the Library, this program is FREE to anyone living in Maine.

Lit Chicks is done for spring of 2017 and will start back up this fall.

We meet every second Thursday each month at 6pm in the Board Room at the Bangor Public Library. Though we meet at the library, we are not affiliated with the library and welcome all members of the public into our group. 

If you are having trouble finding our book of the month on our Facebook wall and Goodreads page please let us know and we'll figure something out for you.
