PageTurners Book Club

Picture of Pageturners meeting.

The Pageturners Library Book Club is a volunteer-run library program intended to provide participants a scholarly discussion of a wide variety of fiction and nonfiction literature. The group meets monthly – except for December – on the fourth Wednesday of the month at 10:15 a.m. in the library’s Community Room. Books are selected by a committee of the book club or through participation in programs such as the Idaho Commission for Libraries/Humanities Council’s “Let’s Talk About It” book discussion series. The club is also supported by the Friends of the Coeur d’Alene Public Library. Discussions are open to any adult reader and there is no charge to participate. To check on the availability of the monthly selections visit the Research and Information Desk at the library.

The schedule of books for the Pageturners Library Book Club set through June 2019 and includes the selection for the annual North Idaho Reads shared book program.
