The Upshur County Public Library’s Book Club began in September, 2017.  It generally meets on the first Thursday of each month, barring holidays.  They try and read a combination of both fiction and nonfiction titles, and have read the following books since they started:

September 2017 – Hidden Figures, by Margot Lee Shetterly
October 2017 – Reader’s Choice (members picked books they liked and presented on them)
November 2017 – Spool of Blue Thread, by Ann Tyler
