Between the Covers Book Club and After Dark

are our two original book clubs. They read the same books, just at a different time. There are 5 fiction titles, and 4 non-fiction titles. The titles are voted on by the current participants, and the winning titles are discussed. The 'year' begins September, we skip December, and finish in June, with another break over July and August. As they read the same books, patrons may only sign-up for one group. If you are interested in getting on the waitlist for one of the bookclubs, please email Stephanie at: sjames@pentictonlibrary.ca.

Pride Pages

was started in January 2020, and had to be suspended until August 2022. This is run in partnership with SOS Pride. The group is intended for everyone, and demonstrates inclusivity, and joy for our community. This is a safe space for everyone to be respected and accepted for being themselves. If you are interested in joining Pride Pages please email Stephanie at: sjames@pentictonlibrary.ca or Li at: lianeabbey3@gmail.com

Art of Reading

started in January 2023 in collaboration with the Art Gallery. Each month the book has a link to art (not only visual art, but can include dance, music, theatre, etc). We also create something, while we talk about the book. If you are interested in joining Art of Reading, please email Stephanie at: sjames@pentictonlibrary.ca.
