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 Wednesday 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.*
- *Please note: The Dinwiddie Book Group will be meeting the 24th of April instead of the 17th due to the holiday.
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.
