We Support Book Clubs in Grantham!
The Dunbar Free Library supports quite a few book clubs in Grantham by securing multiple copies of books from other libraries.
These groups were started by individuals who shared a common interest. If you see a group you may be interested in joining, give us a call and we’ll let you know if they are accepting new members.
Are you interested in forming a new club? Ask us how!
The Book-To-Movie club is the only group hosted by the DFL library. New members are ALWAYS welcome.
This club selects books that have been made into movies. They meet first to discuss the book and then later in the week to view the movie on the big screen and snack on popcorn.
This group is always open to new members. You can come one month and skip the next.
Stop by the library (or call us) for the current book. We always have enough for new members!
