Book Discussions

We're working on virtual book discussion options and will communicate here and on the calendar. Please watch for information, or feel free to email or call the library to get updates. 603-329-6411.

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 but has been meeting via Zoom online. See adult events calendar for specifics.
  • The Non-Fiction Book Group meets September through June on the 1st Tuesday at 1 pm. This group usually holds their discussion in the Judi Crowley Seminar Room. More information about meetings in the fall to come.

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.
