Book Clubs

Join a Book Club - It's Free and Fun!

Ramsey County Library invites you to join one of our many book clubs. From mysteries to nonfiction, there is a book club for you at Ramsey County Library. Everyone is welcome to come and join in the monthly discussions.

We also offer Book Club in a Bag, which is an easy way for you to start your own book club. We provide the books and all the information you need to have a great discussion - you provide the readers.
