The Yorkville Library offers five adult book clubs to become involved with. Join us any time for invigorating discussion about books in whichever club best suits your needs. Click here to learn more about our adult book clubs.
Our newest clubs are Books & Cooks – a foodie book club – and The Horror Book Club – a group for readers who love spooky and creepy reads.
From our Threads & More needlework group to Makerspace Tuesdays to The Yorkville Creative Writing Group, the library offers a number of opportunities for members of the community to find their creative outlet, work with other creative minded people, and try out new skills and hobbies.
The library can be a great place to meet new people and learn new things. These programs are a great way to expand your horizons and enjoy new company.
