Need a good New Year’s resolution? Join one of the great book clubs at the Castro Valley Library.

When you join a book club you’ll get to know people in your community and be exposed to new books and perspectives. Take it from a librarian, reading provides mental stimulation by expanding your vocabulary, increasing your analytical skills, and improving your focus and concentration. Plus our book clubs are fun!

The Library has four free book clubs to choose from.

If you love a good mystery, join the Mystery Book Club for a lively discussion of classic and current crime fiction. The club is facilitated by best-selling mystery writer, Camille Minichino, a Castro Valley resident, on the first Tuesday of each month at 6:30 pm.  Drop in or contact Ms. Minichino at

Our eBestseller Book Club is for adults interested in getting a taste of reading eBooks on a Library-owned NOOK tablet. Attend the first meeting on February 10th to receive your NOOK tablet and learn how to use it. Then on March 10th, April 14th, and May 14th at 6:30 pm the group will meet to discuss a bestselling book preloaded on the NOOKs. Advance registration is required, so come to the Library to sign up and learn about the requirements for participation. This book club is limited to 12 people. Contact Chris Selig at for more information.

In the Parent-Child Book Club, parents read and discuss the same books as their sons and daughters. The conversations can bring families closer together and foster community with other families. The club meets the third Tuesday of every month at 7 pm and is recommended for ages 9 to 12. Stop by the Library to sign up and learn about upcoming dates and titles.

Lastly there’s the original Castro Valley Library Book Club for adults who want to read and discuss a wide variety of fiction and nonfiction selected by club members and librarians. This book club meets on the last Tuesday of each month from 6:30 pm to 8 pm. At the next meeting on Tuesday, January 27th we’ll be discussing A Long Way Down by Nick Hornby. Stop by the Library to sign up or just drop in. Contact Chris Selig at for more information.

The Library is located at 3600 Norbridge Avenue. Call us at 510-667-7900 for more information.
