Book Club

Looking for a legit book club where people actually talk about the bookJoin us for Collingswood Reads, the Collingswood Public Library’s very own Book Club!

Adults and teens are welcome to gather in the library’s Peter Childs meeting room to discuss the monthly book pick, meet neighbors, and munch on snacks. We read a variety of genres, including mystery, fantasy, historical fiction, and science fiction, not to mention selections from nonfiction. We invite you to come share your thoughts and hear others’ perspectives as well. 

Book club meets once a month, typically the fourth Wednesday of the month, from 7-8 PM. To check the schedule, which occasionally varies due to holidays, ask our staff or visit the library’s events calendar at www.collingswoodlib.org/eventcalendar.  


Our next book:

Collingswood Reads book club meets on Wednesday, July 25th at 7pm. Join us to discuss The Rosie Project by Graeme Simsion.

The art of love is never a science: Meet Don Tillman, a brilliant yet socially inept professor of genetics, who’s decided it’s time he found a wife. In the orderly, evidence-based manner with which Don approaches all things, he designs the Wife Project to find his perfect partner: a sixteen-page, scientifically valid survey to filter out the drinkers, the smokers, the late arrivers. 

Rosie Jarman possesses all these qualities. Don easily disqualifies her as a candidate for The Wife Project. But Don is intrigued by Rosie’s own quest to identify her biological father.

When an unlikely relationship develops as they collaborate on The Father Project, Don is forced to confront the spontaneous whirlwind that is Rosie―and the realization that, despite your best scientific efforts, you don’t find love, it finds you.
