Book Club

Do you love reading books about history? So do we! That's why we created the Ruthmere Book Club - a place where avid readers and history buffs can unite to discuss the stories of the past.

The Ruthmere Book Club meets at 3:30 p.m. on the third Thursday each month. Books are selected annually, alternating between fiction and non-fiction. Books are not provided in all cases, although some are provided by the state library system. 

A second evening meeting may be added each month if there is enough demand.

Contact Lois Tomaszewski at ltomaszewski@ruthmere.org if you would like to join the club or would like more information.

Club membership is FREE.
