Books for Book Clubs

The Berkeley Heights Public Library has two book groups. The Evening Book Group's book selections over the years can be found on our website here. The Morning Book Group's lists are here. Librarians are often asked for book recommendations for local book groups. Here is a list of five books that each book group especially enjoyed in the last few years. Please ask our reference librarians if you would like more recommendations for your reading group.
