Welcome to the Take a Break Virtual Book Club!

This is a lighthearted book club for grown-ups, focusing on both fictional and informative titles. No genre is off-limits, as we explore the breadth of VIRL’s wide-ranging collection.

Each month’s title is always available with no holds in both e-book and digital audiobook formats.

Throughout each month, our librarians will moderate discussion in our dedicated Facebook group. At the end of the month, an online meeting is held for folks to chat about the book.  Participate as little or as much as you want. Just want to read the book and not talk to anyone? Great! Looking to make new bookish friends? Also great! Want to skip this month’s discussion, but join in next month? No problem! You’re in charge of how much or how little you join in.
