Adult Book Clubs

The La Vista Public Library offers several book clubs to the community. Copies of each month's title will be available to book club attendees to borrow at no cost. Books for the next month are typically handed out at the monthly meeting, but can also be picked up at the front desk (pre-registration required). Contact Cedate Shultz at CShultz@CityofLaVista.org to reserve a copy of a book. 

Library membership is not required to join a book club, receive a book, or participate.
