This group meets monthly to discuss a chosen book. Titles alternate between fiction and non-fiction. The group is made up of residents of both Nottingham and Northwood and the meetings alternate between the two town libraries as well. See Book Discussion Titles page for a list of the books we have read since the group started in 1990.
There are movie nights and other fun activites planned for teens by our Teen Advisory Group. If you are a teen and would like to join the group or participate on one of the activites , call or e-mail the library.
