SCLSNJ's Virtual Book Discussion Salon

In response to recent events and in order to continue to offer exceptional library services, book discussion groups that were traditionally hosted within one of our ten branches, will now be hosted virtually. Talk books with your favorite SCLSNJ staffers, safely from home.

Join one, join two … join them all!

“Our book discussion groups are a fun opportunity to connect with fellow readers. Since everyone’s life experiences bring something different to the table, we get to hear a variety of different viewpoints. I learn something new at every book discussion,” said Carol Polhemus, virtual book discussion salon moderator.

“Libraries exist to serve their communities and book discussions give that mission agency. When you collectively explore how a book influenced your thoughts and feelings, it creates a bridge of trust, respect, and shared perspective, allowing us to connect us with our communities in a personal and meaningful way,” said Carina Gonzalez, virtual book discussion salon moderator.

“If you have been curious about what happens at a book discussion, here is your chance to join one from the comfort of your home. It’s been my experience, after running a book discussion group for over 15 years, that those who participate in book discussions enjoy it because it pushes them to read books out of their comfort zone. So, give it a try!” said Jennifer Konopacki, virtual book discussion salon moderator.
