Read Aloud Book Club

Thursday, December 15, 2016 at 10:00 AM -- 95th Street Library
Reading aloud is a long-standing social tradition. Historically, families often read together as a form of entertainment, and factory workers had books read to them as a way to relieve the tedium. Naperville Public Library is reaching out in that tradition with its Read Aloud Book Club for those who wish to enjoy and explore the written word in this historical format. The book club is open to all adult readers - those who are native speakers and those who are learning. The books will be read at a pace determined by the group, and limited copies will be available at the 95th Street Library's adult services desk. *Program requires advanced registration.
