Mark Zuckerberg Book Club - A Year of Books

Are you looking for a new book club?  

A book club you can join without ever leaving home or changing out of your pajamas. Mark Zuckerberg started one. Participants will read a new book every two weeks and discuss it on Faceboook. The chosen books will emphasize learning about new cultures, beliefs, histories and technologies.  

We have purchased the first of the titles in ebook format. They are available through OverDrive in our eLibrary.
