Cover 2 Cover Book Club

Book Club

A special kind of book club!

Join us for this exciting book club at Red Deer Public Library's Dawe Branch! Instead of picking one novel to read each month, participants choose a specific theme, genre, or author. Each member can choose any book (or books) within this theme to read and share with the rest of the group. New members are always welcome!

We meet the 4th Monday of each month from 6:30-8:00 p.m. at the fireplace in the Dawe Banch of RDPL. (Note: this will be changed to the another Monday if the 4th Monday falls on a holiday).

Reading Suggestions

Staff prepare suggested reading lists for all of Cover 2 Cover's monthly themes!

Have you read a fantastic book from one of our themes or genres that you want to recommend? Send an email to and we will add it to the list!
