Book Discussion Groups 
 

Salem Public Library hosts two book discussion groups: Books for Lunch and Books for Dessert. The groups are organized and led by staff members. Meetings are free and open to the public. The Salem Public Library Foundation and the Friends of the Salem Public Library have teamed up to sponsor the purchase of book kits for the book discussion groups. Books for the upcoming month's discussion are available for checkout at each meeting and then, up to the date of the meeting, at the Information/Reference Desk. More information is available from the Information/Reference Desk in person or by phone at 503-588-6052.

Book kits are also available for check-out and use by area book groups.
A complete listing of book kits is available
online
.

Books for Lunch and Books for Dessert are made possible through the support of the Friends of Salem Public Library and the Salem Public Library Foundation.
