Book Group @Claremont

On Wednesday, May 17th at 5:30p, the Claremont Book club will meet to discuss Aldous Huxley's Brave New World. We have a limited number of copies at the Claremont Information desk. Staff are also happy to help you request copies from other locations or to help you check this book out from our new download service, Hoopla. We hope you can join us for what is certain to be a robust discussion of a classic! We'll also be planning our reading selection for July's group meeting. All are welcome. Free.


Join us in our Community Meeting Room where we will be giving away FREE comics for all ages from 1pm-4pm while supplies last. We will be showing anime videos and we will also be making buttons of your favorite Super Hero & anime characters.  All ages are welcome for free comic-themed fun for the whole family.
