Join the “Arroyo Grande Bookends,” an adult book discussion group moderated by a library staff member and open to the public.  Meetings are once a month and we discuss a wide selection of books.  Copies of discussion books are available from the library.  Obtain a list of our discussion books at the link below or from our reference librarian.     Bookends Calendar
