Book Clubs are enlightening, stimulating, entertaining, and even life-changing!

When it comes to book clubs there is something for everyone here at Westwood Library. Bring your reading to life while engaging with others in the community. Check out the options we have for library-run book clubs. All books will be available at the main library circulation desk. Have questions? Give us a call at 781-326-7562.


Whether you are charged with picking your book club’s next read or you are thinking of starting a book group in your neighborhood, we can help! Ask us for book recomendations or if you are in need of multiple copies for your book club we are happy to request titles from other libraries and have them ready for you to check out. Just call Karen Gallagher, Head of Circulation at 781-320-1049  or email for more information.
