MYSTERY BOOK CLUBS:

Clovis Mystery Book Club
I have set our specialized meetings for a few years on the same monthly rotation. all have early start times of 2 pm.
April meeting – Movie month
October meeting – celebrate book club birthday with potluck
November meeting – Holiday book and holiday bookmark making (donated to kids of Clovis Library)

2. Our Sept 2019 International Mystery month was so successful I am including it as a yearly September event.

3. The Clovis Library does a lot for the club. If you check out your book at the Clovis Library go to the desk and have them check it out. Tell them you are in the mystery book club and they will extend the due date to the next meeting. Also if you have to keep the monthly book past the due date, again go the the desk, let them know it is a bookclub book and they wll take off the fine,

4. Lastly thanks for all the participation in meetings. It has a been a great 15 years and I hope many more to come. I especially look forward to having the club meetings in the “new library to come” My contact info is on the schedule, please feel free to contact me anytime with questions or book suggestions. I also welcome book reviews when you can’t attend a meeting,

HAPPY HOLIDAYS
