Library Book Clubs
While the library is open, some of our book clubs are still meeting with masking and social distance requirements. No more than 12 people are currently allowed in the library's Story Room.
The West Bend Library hosts a variety of Book Clubs which are open to the public. Some of the groups are currently full. We will take names for waiting lists, however. See below for more information:
Once Upon a Crime Book Club

This group is currently full. Please contact Susan at 262-335-5151, ext. 5258 or email firstname.lastname@example.org for more information.
This group will next be meeting on Wednesday, November 11 at 3 PM at the library.

The Books and Beers Book Club is for adults who have a love of food, drink, and literature.

Currently, this group is on hiatus until spring 2021 due to COVID-19.

Books on Tap Book Club
We are excited to try our new Books on Tap Book Club! This group just started in January and will meet the 4th Monday of every month at local coffee shops and pubs in West Bend. The idea is to share a fun discussion of books and enjoy a beverage of your choice (soda, water, wine, beer, coffee, whatever you want!). This group has been meeting at the library, which is subject to change. For November 23 at 6:30 PM, they will be discussing Daisy Jones and the Six by Taylor Jenkins Reid.
They will have no December meeting due to the holidays.
