Simply Books! is the library’s book group for adults, designed for book lovers. There’s no set reading list, we don’t all read the same book, and it’s very informal. We simply bring along whatever book we’re currently reading (the ones we’re loving and want to talk about!), and share it with the group.   If you’d like to learn more, please email Marie Stickney at mstickney@librarycamden.org. Or visit the Readers Corner Blog at cplreaderscorner.wordpress.com, and click on the “Simply Books!” page.…
