Books On Tap

The July and August discussions will still meet online at 5:30 on the third Monday.

Books. Bites. Brews. What a great combination! We’ve partnered with O’Reilly’s Cure in Scarborough to offer a book group—Books on Tap—moderated by Tom Corbett, our Systems Librarian (and beer enthusiast). Due to high demand, we're now offering two time options, with an ealier option when the restaraunt is quieter at 4:00. Here’s how it works: Arrive between 3:30 and 4:00 for the early session or between 5:00 and 5:30 pm for the second session; settle into the lounge area; purchase bites and beverages from O’Reilly’s menu; and then share good conversation about the book selected for the month starting at 4:00 or 5:30 pm. Both discussions last about an hour.

Upcoming Events

August Book On Tap

Book Jacket

The selection for the August Books on Tap discussion group, How to be an Antiracist by Ibram X. Kendi. This book, and Kendi's earlier award winning book on racism, Stamped from the Beginning, will be discussed at that August meeting. We skipped July to give you a chance to read Stamped from the Beginning if you have time (800+ pages, but well worth it). Join us in August even if you only have time to read one of them!
