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.
