Branch Book Groups

  • Book Buzz: A Book Discussion With a Twist
    Carnegie Library of Pittsburgh wants to connect with you, where you are. This summer, join us for a new kind of book discussion: Book Buzz.
  • Genre Book Club
    Join us for a literary adventure as we explore and discuss a book from a different genre each month. Meets at CLP-Squirrel Hill on the third Wednesday of the month at 6 pm.
  • Smithfield Critics
    Join the Smithfield Critics, our popular Downtown & Business book discussion group, on the third Wednesday of every month for cookies, coffee and lively discussion of interesting and diverse books that span multiple genres. You never know how smart you can become! Sign up for our newsletter.
  • Squirrel Hill Adult Book Group
    The group reads primarily nonfiction (biographies, histories, witty commentaries) with a few fascinating novels and short story collections to round out the conversation each year. It generally meets on the fourth Thursday of the month at 1 PM.
