September 2022 Spotlight: Book Club Girls Sparta
Our September 2022 Spotlight gets creative with monthly meetings and celebrations!

July 2022 Spotlight: Athena Readers Book Club
Our July 2022 Spotlight has used the power of technology to stay connected!
The Athena Readers Book Club started in 2016 at the Johnston Branch of the San Antonio Public Library.

November 2021 Spotlight: Meg’s Book Group
Our November 2021 Spotlight dedicated their group name to one of their members in her honor
Meg’s Book Group was formed by a group of teachers and other staff from Lincoln Elementary School in Madison, WI, decades ago. Soon, parents wormed their way in and we’ve been meeting steadily ever since with some new members joining while others left. Our group is now 8 regular members mostly in our late 50s and early 60s.
Over the years, we’ve become good friends and share more than just book discussions.
