Virtual Book Club
Join at YOUR Convenience
Next Book starts October 14th, the title is Woman in the Library by Solari Gentil.
The Osterville Village Library is excited to announce the launch of the "Whenever Book Club"! In this online community, library patrons will connect with each other to read and discuss books on a range of topics whenever they have the time. There is no cost to participate - you just have to get a copy of the book to enjoy!
The Book Club will connect through a private forum where all participants can discuss the current book and network with each other on their own time. The Group will spend approximately two months on each book so you will have plenty of time to read and discuss.

How the Book Club Works
The Osterville Vilage Library and the Massachusetts Commonwealth Library has partnered with PBC Guru to create a virtual book club for patrons and the community covering lifelong learning, personal growth, fiction, non-fiction, and other genres participants are interested in. The book club will connect through a private forum where all participants can discuss the current book and network with each other.
- The book club will read one book every two to three months, so you'll have plenty of time for each book.
- There are no membership or subscription fees. Joining the book club is completely free!
