The Wilkes BoSS Book Club is for those of us who books of all kinds but don't have time for face-to-face book club meetings. Each month, we will read a different book. Copies of each month's selection will be available at the library a month in advance, or you may choose to download the eBook via our Libby app when available. You can join us for a book discussion virtually in our Wilkes BoSS Book Club Facebook Group (https://www.facebook.com/groups/1329404337426672) whenever you have time and no matter what you're wearing!
