jacobsfollyOur next book will be “Jacob’s Folly” by Rebecca Miller. Part historical fiction and part modern magical realism, this highly unique novel promises to be an imaginative and saucy read. Copies of the book are available at the Reference Desk. Pick up a copy, read it, and join us on 5/24 @ 7:30 pm!

Titles on Tap is a social book group for readers in their 20s and 30s and for TOT_matthe young at heart. We go in for stories that are shaken, not stirred, and we don’t mind taking our love of lit outside the library walls. Titles on Tap meets once a month in the left-hand bar of Napper Tandy’s to eat, drink, be merry, and discuss the latest reading selection. Visit our website and follow us @titlesontap to learn more.
