Elkhart Public Library

Talk it out

Get more out of what you’re reading

(As the public health situation continues to evolve, please contact your library location for information about upcoming book discussions.)

Since the invention of the printing press, people have gotten together in groups to talk about what they’ve read. These groups are supported by the library, and if you have an idea for a new discussion, send us a note.
