Mystery Book Club

I would like to take this opportunity to invite everyone to attend our Mystery Book Club.  We took a short break over the summer but now it's time to dig back into the mysteries we all enjoy.  I thought we might find a mystery that is written in our favorite state.  This gives us lots of choices and may bring a new and exciting author to the discussion.  Wednesday will continue to be our meeting day and the time will still be 2 pm.  So grab your books and come join us for our Mystery Book club discussion.  See you there.  Anyone is welcome to attend.

Please register at the service desk or call Baldwin Boettcher Library at 281-821-1320
