Book Groups at the Morse Institute Library

Subjects: Adults, Reading Room

About this Program

You enjoy reading, why not join us and talk about it!

Covering many different genres, our library book groups meet regularly to discuss the issues and situations that arise in our monthly selections. New members are always welcome to check out what we have to offer, stop by to pick up the current book selection, and bring your fresh opinions to our conversation!

Contact the Main Desk or any group facilitator with your questions.

Check out one of our current book groups to see what we're reading next!

Mission & Guidelines

It is the mission of the Morse Institute Library Book Clubs to provide an open and friendly environment within which all members of the community are welcome to discuss books they have read as well as to expand members’ personal literary experiences by introducing them to books that they might otherwise not have selected.

In order to promote an open and friendly environment, we ask that members please:

  • Speak up when you have something you want to contribute to the conversation. Do not feel pressured to speak if you are content to listen to others.
  • Listen thoughtfully to others when they are speaking so that you can respond or carry on the conversation from where the last person left off.
  • Respect others opinions, especially when they differ from your own.
  • Be brief when talking to help ensure that everyone has the opportunity to speak.
  • Do not talk over one another or have side conversations that disrupt the main discussion.
  • Keep personal political and religious viewpoints out of the discussion unless they relate to the book being discussed.
  • Do not feel pressure to finish the book. Your interest in the topic alone is enough to contribute to the conversation and you can still learn and have fun listening to others discuss the book.
