Book Clubs

The Lakewood Public Library, for all its diversions, is a place for books and reading. Those with a desire to share their thoughts and experiences might consider dropping in at one of our regular book clubs. The long-running Booked for Murder is a club for lovers of murder, mystery and mayhem—though everyone is mostly nice. Knit and Lit offers a forum to those who like to tackle challenging fiction and serious stitchery at the same time.
