We have multiple book groups here at Harvey-Mitchell Memorial Library. Each group picks a new book to read and meets at the library once a month to discuss the book and enjoy some tea and snacks. Each group is always open to new members, and we will provide copies of the book on hold at the upstairs desk. If you are interested, come on by to grab a book and join in the monthly meeting.

Here are our current Book Groups at HMML:


The Dusty Olde Mystery Book Group

This book group generally meets on the 3rd Tuesday of every month (subject to change, please check our calendar) and is centered around mysteries published before 1950, or newer publications based in that time period, such as the works of Agatha Christie, Earl Derr Biggers, and Arthur Conan Doyle to name a few.

This Month’s Dusty Mystery Book is:
Crocodile on the Sandbank by Elizabeth Peters


The Contemporary Book Group

This book group meets the last Tuesday of every month (subject to change, please check our calendar) and is focused on contemporary fiction beginning from the latter part of the 20th century. Previous authors include Liane Moriarty, Elin Hilderbrand, and Fredric Bachman.

This Month’s Contemporary Book is:
The Lying Game by Ruth Ware


The Classic Book Group

The newest book group at HMML reads and discusses classic novels. The next meeting date is still to be determined.
