This group is for those with an interest in popular fiction & nonfiction, and is open to everyone. This was the Library's first book club in a long while, thus it became our Premier Group. It began in 1999 and enjoys discussing a variety of genres.

Limited copies of each book are available to borrow at the Information Desk. Call 406-447-1690 for more information.
