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.

Lit Chicks Book Group

Our Lit Chicks Book Group is the library's more traditional book group.  Led by Candis Joyce, one of our reference librarians, the group meets the first Tuesday of every month at 2:00 pm, September through May.  While the final choices for our book list are chosen by Candis, group members make suggestions about genre and topics to consider.  Please be aware that this group keeps a membership of 20 participants. We are at that limit and we do have a waiting list.   Coming soon:  an online listing of our books and a way to take part online.

Bangor LGBTQ Book Group

(This group is not run by the Library)

A book group for queer, questioning, and allied readers in the Bangor area. This is an open group, and anyone can join or drop in, as this is a registration free event. 

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.
