Looking for something good to read? Welcome to Readers' Round Table, a monthly meeting for book lovers. Here's a chance to share a bit about the books you read and fill up your "to-be-read" list with recommendations by your peers.

After the Round Table discussion from 2:00-3:00 pm, you can stick around from 3:00-4:00 pm for our Silent Book Club. It's basicaly a silent reading hour, and you don't need to attend the Round Table to participate. Sometimes it's hard to make the time to read. Now you can schedule it and join others, too! Don't you deserve an hour of quiet, uninterrupted reading?
