Regular events & programs

Hilltops Council Library Book Clubs 

Several Book Clubs access the sets of titles available from the Library, and members are welcome to establish or join a Book Club with these resources. Five groups meet at the Library Branches and others attend a selected venue where some lively discussion takes place as the focus is on a different book each session.  Our Book Clubs follow a simple formula: gather people, pick a book, read and meet to discuss!
