About the Group

Meet new people in a non-classroom setting! The FC Leisure Reading Book Group was formed to encourage students to read for recreation. Through the generosity of the Friends of the Library, students will receive a free book chosen by the student participants. The group will meet to discuss the themes in the selected book during informal gatherings over snacks. It’s a great opportunity for students to meet others and to practice expressing their opinions in a relaxed environment.

Each participant receives a free copy of the book as well as free snacks during the discussions.

The group meets regularly during the semester. Students can join at any time, but the first kick-off meeting is where the group picks the book to read for the semester. Participants each get a free book, purchased by Friends of the Library. Some light snacks are also available.
