The Milford Public Library offers a variety of book groups for diverse reading interests. Its scope has expanded to include a travel related book club. The library now hosts four distinctive groups.

“Our community is diverse, with a wide variety of interests. We offer several book discussion groups for our patrons’ wide-ranging reading selections,” said Nancy Abbey, assistant library director.

The Classic Book Club features acclaimed and captivating literature from authors around the world. Past selections have included the work of Dante, Edith Wharton, Charles Dickens, Henry James and Mary Shelley.

The Evening Book Club offers readers a varied selection of non-fiction, mystery and best sellers.

“Each month, we enjoy a lively discussion on the topics that relate to the books,” said group facilitator Lucille O’Leary.

The Romance Book Club discusses titles which have one common thread – all end happily ever after. The selections include mysteries, comedies, suspense, historical, medieval and contemporaries from best selling and new authors. Topics may be serious or lighthearted.

The library’s newest addition is a Travel Book Club, which will meet quarterly rather than monthly. The focus of each selection will be on some aspect of travel including a look at culture and cuisine. The next meeting is scheduled for Sept. 14 with a discussion of “The Invisible Bridge” by Julie Orringer. Books will be available at the library in early August.
