Adult Book Group: Beginning September 2022 through April 2023 (no meeting in December), the CML Book Group will meet monthly on Zoom on the fourth Tuesday of the month at 6:30 PM. If you can’t Zoom from home, ask to use a computer at the library. See our News or Calendar page for the list of titles and the Zoom link.

One Book One Valley: A collaboration between 16 area libraries and White Birch Books independent bookstore. Events and book discussions take place in October.

Kids’ Book Clubs are held several times a year. See our “For Kids” page for the next meeting.

Getting books for your book group: If you belong to a book group and have a Tamworth library card, you can ask to borrow multiple copies of a title for your group. We will request copies from other New Hampshire libraries through our interlibrary loan system.  Note that new titles (less than six months from publication date) will not be available to borrow from other libraries.

Book group kits: New Hampshire Library Association has dozens of READS-to-Go kits, large tote bags that contain 15 copies of a discussable book, available for book groups to borrow. See a listing of available titles at http://www.eventkeeper.com/kitkeeper/index.cfm?curOrg=NHLA.  Let us know if you’re interested in borrowing any of these kits.

Our library has multiple copies of the following titles, which may be borrowed as a set for your book group. Just let us know if you’d like to borrow any of these:
