Un-Book Club

Are you looking to connect with other readers but don't always like the selected titles? Want to join a book group but don't always have the time to read the whole book? Join Ventress Library's Un-Book Group! We read everything, and all reading tastes are welcome, including but certainly not limited to literary fiction, romance, thrillers, fantasy & science fiction, classics, memoirs, short books, long books, audiobooks, ebooks, graphic novels, serious books and books with quirky senses of humor, books with deep themes and fluff books, popular books and hidden gems, mainstream authors and brand-new indie books - we love them all and all are valid.

This group meets from 6:00 - 7:00 p.m. on the last Tuesday of each month. Contact Erica Ruscio ( or fill out our Interest Form if you would like to join the email list for this group.
