This month the Adult Book Club is reading The Little Book of Hygge: Danish secrets to happy living by Meik Wiking

“The Danes are famously the happiest people in the world, and hygge is a cornerstone of their way of life. Hygge (pronounce Hoo-ga) loosely translates as a sense of comfort, togetherness, and well-being. You know hygge when you feel it. It is when you are cuddled up on the sofa with a loved one or sharing comfort food with your closest friends. It is those crisp blue mornings when the light through your window is just right. It is about gratitude and savoring the simple pleasures in life. In short, it is the pursuit of everyday happiness.“

This program is free and open to the public.  Copies are available at the circulation desk. Learn more about the Book Club on our website.

This month the Adult Book Club is reading The Little Book of Hygge: Danish secrets to happy living by Meik Wiking

“The Danes are famously the happiest people in the world, and hygge is a cornerstone of their way of life. Hygge (pronounce Hoo-ga) loosely translates as a sense of comfort, togetherness, and well-being. You know hygge when you feel it. It is when you are cuddled up on the sofa with a loved one or sharing comfort food with your closest friends. It is those crisp blue mornings when the light through your window is just right. It is about gratitude and savoring the simple pleasures in life. In short, it is the pursuit of everyday happiness.“

This program is free and open to the public.  Copies are available at the circulation desk. Learn more about the Book Club on our website.

Reading at the Table

Join our informal book discussion group for teens! There's no assigned book and no pressure to talk. You can share recommendations with fellow teen readers and get first dibs on brand new YA books before they hit the shelves. Best of all, we eat pizza and dessert while we chat. This month we'll make some 2020 Reading Resolutions. 

Open to grades 6-12. Pre-registration is required to help us plan for dinner.
