Next Chapter book club color cropped

Join us every second Thursday of the month to discuss books! This summer, The Next Chapter (formerly Read with a Red) will be an open discussion of what we’re reading and what’s next! Meetings will be held outdoors, socially distanced, weather dependent, and the backup plan is an online Zoom meeting.

Visit the Library in person or call 847-639-2274 to register -- even if you’re a regular! -- to receive the latest updates on whether the meeting will be held in person or online each month. Please notify us of any special accommodation requests.
