Good Grounds For Books, August 2009 meeting

This morning's monthly Good Grounds For Books group produced a wealth of reading ideas for nearly every type of reader. You can join us on the third Wednesday of each month from 11 a.m. to 12 p.m. at the Woodland West Branch. Enjoy a free cup of coffee and talk about the latest book (or books!) that you've read. We love seeing new faces because that means more book ideas.
