Adult Library Services
- Book discussion groups
“A book discussion group is a forum where readers can come together and talk about books and the reading experience. These groups can be organized in a variety of ways. There are adult groups, student-led groups, mother-daughter groups, father-son groups, and parent-child groups, to name just a few. At my library we have a parent-child book discussion group, but the guidelines found in this article can apply to any group with children as participants.” -- “Giving Readers a Voice: Book Discussion Groups,” by Anna Healy.
