Cole Library hosts book groups for teen and adults. Check out our offerings below!
Teen Book Groups
Check out our teen book discussion groups! Currently, the group is divided into two sections – one for middle school and one for high school students. Each group meets once a month in the Browsing Room of the library September through May, and is a great way for teens to connect through meaningful literature. The groups get together at the beginning of each school year to decide which books will be read, and members receive a copy of each title to keep. Both groups are generously sponsored by Hills Bank & Trust.
Teen Book Groups will return in the fall.
Adult Book Groups
Cole Library host two book discussion groups for adults!
Community of Readers
Community of Readers meets monthly at Cole Library and is facilitated by Cathy Boggs. The books are chosen by the members and vary in content. We select a new book each month, so it is never too late to join. Contact Cathy Boggs at (319) 895-4262 or firstname.lastname@example.org if you would like to join!
