Book Discussion Groups

Somonauk Public Library offers several book groups for your reading pleasure. Each group is designed for the reading interest of the patrons in the group.

Each group meets at the library during library hours, either during the day or in the evening. The groups are open to all adult patrons whether male or female, a library card holder at our library or another library.

Books are chosen by those that participate in the groups during the year. All are welcome to participate.
