Are you looking for a great summer read? Join our Book Club for a summer reading discussion at Eudora Brewing Company on June 16th at 5:30 pm. We’ll have a casual conversation about books we’re reading and share recommendations with each other.
If you can’t make it to our in-person discussion, we have ideas for your summer reading! Our staff have suggested a few titles they recommend. We’ve linked them to our catalog or the SearchOhio catalog to make it easy for you to request them.
We’ve also included the list of titles from the past three years of titles from our Book Club. We hope you will join us for the 2022-2023 book discussions beginning in September 2022. The Book Club is sponsored by Friends of the Libraries, the WSU Alumni Association, and the WSU Retirees Association.
Enjoy your summer and happy reading!
