A List of Great Reads
At an annual meeting, speaker Diane Schuster shared her observations about book clubs in Claremont, and handed out a list of last year's reads from 30+ local clubs. There is certain to be something here you'd like to read!
In honor of the library's centennial celebration last year, we asked you to send us your library memories. We heard wonderful stories about libraries from here to England! Read the memories by clicking here.
