Book Discussions

The Hampstead Public Library hosts 2 book discussion groups regularly:
  • The Third Thursday Book Club meets at 1 pm year round. They read fiction and the occasional non-fiction title. This group normally holds their discussion in the 2nd floor meeting room or outside. See adult events calendar for specifics.
  • The Non-Fiction Book Group meets September through June on the 1st Tuesday at 1 pm.  

All are welcome to join either group at any time. Books are available for check-out to HPL cardholders 1 month before the discussion date and will have a due date after the discussion.
