Friendly Book Discussion Group
Although not sponsored by the library, one other book club does use the library's meeting rooms for their book discussions.  It is called the "Friendly Book Discussion Group." This group is sponsored by the Friends of the Thousand Oaks Library.
This group meets the 1st Thursday of each month at 6:30 p.m. in the Grant R. Brimhall Library Technology Training Room. Friendly Book Discussion books are labeled "Book Discussion Group," and are shelved on a wooden shelf near the Rental books at the Grant R. Brimhall Library.  Friendly Book Discussion books in the library, like Rental books, are first-come-first-served.  They cannot be placed on Hold or Reserved. Titles are also available as downloadable eBooks via Overdrive.
