The Rosenberg Library is pleased to announce the formation of the Museum Book Club. This exciting program offers participants a chance to experience literature in a more interactive way. Members will get up close and personal with art and historical artifacts from the Rosenberg Library Museum related to the book.
The Museum Book Club creates an ideal mix of discussion and discovery. Bridging book discussion and the museum’s collections in this personal way is truly an exciting venture. The book club will focus on the same book and artifacts once a month for two months so that people may attend during their lunch break. By offering the same program twice, we hope to reach a significant number of community members and allow ample participation from working individuals, people with busy schedules, and also established book clubs who wish to participate in the interactive discussion and artifact display.
Registration is required for all Museum Book Club meetings. Established Book Clubs are encouraged to participate. Groups of over 10 people are asked to call the reference desk so we may arrange to accommodate your entire group. Please call (409) 763 - 8854 ext. 115 to register or for additional information.
