Quincy Book Club

Community Book Club Guidelines

Hosted with Barn Owl Books


Monthly meetings of the book club shall be held on the third Tuesday of every month at 4:30pm - 5:30pm in the Quincy Library Public Meeting Room.

The Library’s meeting room is still closed so we will be meeting at Dame Shirley Plaza (bring a lawn chair!) at 5:15pm for the foreseeable future.

August 25 meeting is cancelled due to air quality from the fires. We are going to do both the Aug and Sept books at the Sept meeting instead.

Please note: Currently we plan to meet at the Plaza for Sept (Tues Sept 22) and Oct (Tues Oct 27) and then possibly switch to zoom meetings for winter. However, as we all know COVID-19 makes it hard to completely plan even a month into the future.

Book Choice of the Month(s):

Tues Sept 22 2020: Book Woman of Troublesome Creek by Kim Michele Richardson [can be found in our catalog here] & Trust Exercise by Susan Choi  [can be found in our catalog here

Tues Oct 27 2020: Bunny by Mona Awad   [can be found in our catalog here

The Library’s meeting room is still closed so we will be meeting at Dame Shirley Plaza (bring a lawn chair!) at 5:15pm

Book Selection:

  • Books will be picked two months in advance at the monthly meeting (e.g. books for November will be picked at the September meeting.)
  • Book selections can be nominated by any attendee. Final selection will be decided on by a vote. Nominated books must be less than 450 pages and must be available in paperback. [Note: Librarian or bookstore employee has final say if the selected book is appropriate for the group.]
  • Several copies of the month’s book pick will be available at the library. Selections will not be available through the zip book program.
  • Books will also be available for sale at Barn Owl Books.

The Plumas County Library and Barn Owl Books would like to foster an environment that is safe, fun, and conducive to the enjoyment of the book discussion among book club members. Please:

  • Maintain a respectful attitude toward all book club members.
  • Respect the opinions and/or viewpoints of other members.
  • Share the floor and make sure all attendees get an opportunity to speak.
