Book Clubs

Our book club–Where the Book Ends–meets the second Thursday of the month at 1:00 p.m. Where the Book Ends books are available for checkout at the circulation desk one month prior to meetings. All are welcome! No registration required. As of March 13, 2020, all in-person library programs have been canceled. For more information, visit our Current Services page.

In the meantime, join South Milwaukee Library’s first ever virtual book club on Facebook! Share what you’re reading currently or discuss a chosen book that we’ll read together. All chosen books will be available on our digital resource Hoopla for free and immediate checkout with your Milwaukee County library card. The virtual book club previously read (or listened to) The Alchemist by Paulo Coelho, Radium Girls by Kate Moore, and The Book Woman of Troublesome Creek by Kim Michele Richardson. Hoopla can be downloaded as an app to your digital device or accessed online at
