Knox County Public Library | lifestyle

Mr. Carnegie’s Book Club, named in honor of Andrew Carnegie, the “Patron of Libraries,” meets at 6:30 p.m. the third Monday of each month at the Knox County Public Library, 502 N. Seventh St.

Led by library staff member Janet Kitchin, the book club was established in October 2021. Book clubs are staple programs of public libraries. They encourage a love of literature in a positive, nurturing environment. A book club is a reading group that usually consists of several people who read and talk about books based on a theme or reading list. Formal book clubs like ours meet regularly at a designated location. At Mr. Carnegie’s Book Club, readers can participate in a monthly discussion in person or remotely via a Zoom link. Every month, the library provides refreshments for the participants. That’s one of the benefits of in-person participation.
