The Dewey Decimal Classification System organizes information into 10 main classes which cover the entire world of knowledge. Inside this system are fascinating reads on many topics. Maybe you are an avid nonfiction reader, or you read nonfiction from time to time, or you have never read nonfiction for insight and entertainment. Come join the STRICTLY NONFICTION Book Group, beginning in February 2017, for lively discussion of diverse titles.
- STRICTLY NONFICTION meets the first Friday of the month from 1-2 p.m. in the library’s large meeting room.
- No registration is required. All are welcome!
- Copies of the selected books are available at the Circulation Desk. Please bring your library card to check out a copy.
