Book Discussion Group
This fun, informal group meets on the third Monday every month to discuss a different book. We have copies of our book each month at the circulation desk for immediate checkout.
Lodi Photo Club
Do you have an interest in photography? We're meeting once a month, with challenges/themes and camaraderie.
Artful Adults Workshops
Join us for this hands-on activity series. Artful Adults Workshops is a monthly class series for adults who are interested in arts, crafts, and living a fanciful life full of creativity (Teens may participate only if they are accompanied by an adult).
It's scheduled on the second Thursday of each month at 6:30 pm, and drop-ins are welcome. Check the library calendar on the homepage for dates and times.
Knit Crochet Club
Do you have an interest in knitting or crocheting? Whether you’re a novice or an expert, meet others with the same interest!
This group meets on the 3rd Wednesday of each month at 4 pm. All skill levels, all ages, any gender welcome. Bring your own materials and a love of creativity and fun. Meet others who love yarn to share tips & tricks and learn from one another. Join any time simply by showing up.
Whether you're looking for info on how to use a grill, help passing the GED or ACT, learning another language, or using a new tech gadget, the library has resources to offer. Start here
Looking for a Good Book?
In addition to the great "Don't Miss Lists" in the library catalog, we've also discovered a few other places to find new book lists:
- Sign up for weekly emails from Shelf Awareness to get all the news on new releases
- You may already be picking up the free BookPage newspapers, but they also have a great online presence
- Flashlight Worthy makes lists of good books by subject or theme - not necessarily all new books
- You can browse Goodreads without signing in, but if you register you can also share and look at other readers' shared lists
- In addition to new release recommendations, the Book Reporter also does tons of giveaways - plus, they have a dedicated section for book discussion recommendations
- Plus, the library subscribes to several interesting databases for readers (tip: try NoveList)
Advocate for the library
There are a several ways you can help:
- Use the library, and talk about it to your friends and neighbors! Nothing works better than the word-of-mouth advertising of happy customers.
- Sign up to get notices about ways you can support libraries with our government officials.
- Tell us your library story: Our SCLS libraries are gathering unique tales about how libraries change lives.
