Book Discussion Groups

Book Discussion Group

Some book discussion groups have been moved to online as the library continues to follow health and government guidelines about group size and spatial distancing. Below is a list of book discussions scheduled with CCPL.

Share your passion for reading with a CCPL book discussion group! New attendees are always welcome. Discover new reads and new friends at a library near you.

The Chesterfield County Public Library offers a variety of book discussion groups for customers to gather and discuss their love of books. Below is a list of just some of the groups we offer.
