'Happy Bookers' Seeking New Readers

Staff reports

NORTH ADAMS, Mass. — The public library's (74 Church St.) reading group, "The Happy Bookers," is celebrating its second anniversary in March, and it's always open to new members.

The group is comprised of diverse people who share a passion for reading and offers something for every reader's taste each month.

Over the past two years, the group has discussed fiction and non-fiction ranging in a variety of genres including biography, history, mystery, fantasy, adventure and the classics.
 
The Bookers meet the second Tuesday of the month at 6 p.m., on the third floor of the library. North Adams Public Library makes the books available on loan in advance of each meeting. Maureen O'Brien facilitates the exchange of ideas, thoughts and experiences among the group members. New faces are welcome each month, and there's no obligation to attend every monthly meeting. Just drop in when a book or topic interests you. 
 
The group meets next on March 9, when the featured book will be "The Great Gatsby."

For more information, call the library at 413-662-3133.
