Welcome!

Hello, book club fans! While the coronavirus has forced us to close our branches and suspend our in-person club meetings, but we've been working behind the scenes to create a virtual book club experience.

So we're moving to Discord! We set up a server and several channels for many of our book clubs, and even set up a schedule. 

Now all we need is you! 

If you're new to the Discord platform, check out the how-to put together by staff to help you get on our server and join our discussions. Below, you'll find the club and book schedules.

How to Join a CCPL Zoom Book Discussion

We may not be able to get together at the library but we can still have great conversations! Join one of our Zoom book discussions by clicking on the Registration link in the third column and signing up. You'll get an email from the CCPL staff member moderating the discussion shortly before the group starts providing the login and password to join the Zoom room.
