Adult Book Clubs

The Johnston Public Library has four book clubs for adults with varied book selections, locations and times. Find the perfect book club for you.

Silent Book Club

Shhhhh...it's the JPL Silent Book Club. A Silent Book Club is an event where people meet for an hour dedicated to reading quietly in community. Here's how it works:

*6:30pm to 6:45pm: Grab coffee or tea and a treat and share what you're reading

*6:45pm to 7:45pm: Enjoy an hour of quiet reading with the book of your choice
Come be alone together with other readers!

Thursday Night Book Club

The Thursday Night Book Club meets at the library the second Thursday of each month, 6:30pm-7:45pm. Spirited conversation is guaranteed and coffee and treats are provided.

Lunchtime Lit Book Club

Come for a bounty of good books and good discussion at this lunchtime book club. Brown-bag a lunch if you like, or just come for the discussion. Coffee, tea and treats will be provided. Books are available a month in advance at the Circulation Desk. No reservation is necessary.

Well Red Book Club

Well Red Book Club meets at Gusto Pizza in Johnston the last Tuesday of each month, 6:45pm-7:45pm. Come for the book, come for the conversation, come for a glass of wine or craft beer.

Johnston Public Library also has over 100 titles in multiple copy book club sets available for check-out.
