Richmond Hill bookworms can now look forward to two new reading clubs at our public library.

The Richmond Hill Public Library now offers two book clubs for adults in the community.

Library assistant manager, Maike George, spearheaded the groups’ creation. She was motivated to provide local readers with a fun and free program.

 “We had a lot of people interested, and there weren’t any programs out there that can provide books,” she said. “We wanted to make a club that is accessible to anyone who wants to join. Books should be fun, not expensive.”

The biggest hurdle she encountered while starting the clubs was book selection and availability. Once a title is chosen – a difficult task in its own right –  George has to make sure there are enough copies for everyone.

To aid her in selecting the books, she turned to a friend and fellow reading enthusiast for ideas, and together they chose novels that are both interesting and unique.   
 
“We want to expose people to something out of the ordinary; something they wouldn’t normally pick up,” she explained.

Next on the reading list: “Impossible” by Nancy Werlin and “Garden Spells” by Sarah Addison Allen.

There are two clubs: a morning club, which meets at 11 a. m. twice monthly, and an evening club, which meets at 6 p.m. once monthly. Both are open to anyone who wants to join.

For more information, contact Maike George at (912) 756-3580.
