|KONA LIBRARY BOOK CLUB
The Kona Library Book Club meets on the third Tuesday of every month unless the library is
closed for a holiday. We meet on the lanai of the library at 11:00 AM.
The Book Club has had another very successful year, with our attendance, once again,
reaching new highs. The participation of our readers is exciting with varied opinions and
interesting stories that relate to our selections. A member facilitates the monthly discussion of
the particular book that she/he has chosen. Our selections include fiction, non-fiction,
classics, mysteries, history, memoirs, science, etc. We encourage those who have never
attended to do so. Come and join in the fun and stimulating discussions.
Light refreshments are served.
