The Appomattox Regional Library offers free book groups which meet at libraries on a monthly basis.
- Carson Depot Library: 3rd Thursday of each month at 6:00 p.m.
- Hopewell Library Evening: Last Tuesday of each month at 6:30 p.m.
- Hopewell Library Afternoon: 3rd Thursday of each month at 1:00 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.
