The St. Clair County Library is beginning a new program this year called the Action Book Club according to St. Clair County Administrator Controller, Karry Hepting. This is a twist she says, on a regular book club held at the Port Huron/Main Library! It is still a book discussion group where you read the book and discuss, however it is also intended for those who want to give back to our community. Participants will read books on timely topics, engage and take part in lively discussions along with participating in fun group service projects to benefit the community. All discussions will have a project to help out others. The Action Book Club will meet the last Tuesday of the month between 2 – 3:30 at the Port Huron/Main branch, beginning Tuesday, January 29.
Scheduled titles include:
Jan. 29 – Little Fires Everywhere by Celeste Ng
