A community that is enriched, enlightened, and empowered.

Book Groups

The Appomattox Regional Library offers free book groups which meet at libraries on a monthly basis.

  • Hopewell Library: Last Wednesday of each month at 6:30 p.m.
  • McKenney Library: 2nd Wednesday of each month at 3:00 p.m.
  • Dinwiddie Library: 3rd Thursday of each month at 7:00 p.m. 

These book groups are informal and friendly events. Our philosophy is that a cooperative book group has the benefit of encouraging members to read things that they might not read on their own. Look below for more information on scheduled book meetings.
