Books&Coffee

Come join the monthly Molokai Library Book Club.  Thanks to our wonderful Molokai Friends of the Library for organizing and overseeing this opportunity for a rousing discussion of a new book each month.  Please see the library’s printed calendar for the upcoming month’s book title.  This is a wonderful chance to meet other readers, contribute to the discussion and share possible titles for future months.  Or, just sit back and enjoy the descriptions and ideas of the group.  See you there!!

Bring your best jigsaw puzzle working tactics, your mind ready for a rousing conversation and have a glass of fresh-made organic iced tea on the 2nd Friday of each month.  We’ve just put out our newest 2,000 piece puzzle as the challenge.  Attendees bring up the conversation subjects so you never know what will come up!  Meet a different group of people each month and enjoy quality “puzzle time.”
