Book Club Description

Scribner Library Book Club:

Welcome to Scribner library’s non-traditional book club. The book club is more “show and tell” rather than everyone reading the same book for discussion. In this book club, each person brings a book they would like to share with the group. Please browse our Library catalog for anything you'd like to read and share, or come on in and browse our shelves for ideas!

Feel free to attend the book club gathering to learn about new books and authors without presenting a book. Also, please share this message with other interested members of the Skidmore Community.

For questions about the book club, please contact Hannah Matecko-Conti by phone: 518-580-5580 or email:

We hope to see you there!
