Please join us! Page Turners is a community book club hosted by the Rice Lake Public Library. Feel free to attend any meetings you’d like — a long term commitment not necessary. Book discussion is open to everyone interested in sharing their reading experience with others.
Meetings are held the first Thursday of each month at 6 pm at Rice Lake Public Library.
The entire group selects books based on suitability for discussion and interest to the group as well as availability of copies in the MORE library. Each type of genre and literary form is considered in terms of its own excellence and the audience for which it is intended. Suggestions from readers are welcome.
