Roaming Readers Walking Club
Wednesdays, June 15 – August 10 at 9:00 AM

We will meet at the back of the library parking lot to walk the Polly Ann Trail for 30 minutes and talk about books as we walk! You don’t have to read any particular book to participate, the informal discussion will be about books you are currently reading and what your favorite books are. Enjoy the health benefits of a regular walking routine, socialize with fellow book lovers, and take home recommendations of what to read next!
