The Gruffies Group


The Linwood Community Library currently hosts one book club, the Gruffies Group (Gentle Reads Upon the Final Friday). The Gruffies meet on the final Friday of each month at 1 P.M. Feel free to join! All of the books discussed are currently available or will be made available at the Library. If anyone is interested in starting a different book club at the library, please speak with a staff member.

Here's what the Gruffies will be reading next:


For July:

Sandy Dengler - The Wicked Step-Twister

The Wicked Step-Twister

From amazon.com: When a tornado comes through Willow Bend, it not only takes off the roof of Eternal Hope Church, but it releases thousands of dollars into the community. The mystery of the money consumes the town, local law enforcement, the FBI, and of course, Gracie Parks, choir member, caterer, and part-time sleuth. The Church is in peril. Everyone is a suspect. Gracie needs help from her friends and from God to get to the bottom of this mystery.



For August:

Melody Carson - River's Song

River's Song

From amazon.com: Following her mother’s funeral, and on the verge of her own midlife crisis, widow Anna Larson returns to the home of her youth to sort out her parents’ belongings, as well as her own turbulent life. For the first time since childhood, Anna embraces her native heritage, despite the disdain of her vicious mother-in-law. By transforming her old family home on the banks of the Siuslaw River into The Inn at Shining Waters, Anna hopes to create a place of healing―a place where guests experience peace, grace, and new beginnings. Starting with her own family.
