Cookbook Book Club

BSBPL offers our cookbook club.  This club is a different kind of book club.  Instead of discussing a reading, we instead bring a dish to share and discuss what we’re eating.  Cookbook club meets on the second Sunday every month at 6:00pm.  The location and themes change monthly.  Please call the library for more information.

Book Clubs

Books clubs at BSBPL meet once a month and are open to all. Copies of the reads can be checked out from the Circulation desk on the first floor of the uptown branch one month prior to the discussion date.
