Lafayette READS! is a quarterly reading and discussion group led by Lafayette Public Library staff. We select books that are not only great reads, but that are relevant to today’s issues. Our informal discussions focus on the book itself, and the ways in which the story sheds light on the contemporary world. Lafayette READS! covers both fiction and nonfiction, new books and rediscovered classics.  We’re a reading group that really does talk about the book! You can find all current and previous book selections in the catalog.


Upcoming Selection: The Last Cowboys, by John Branch

We'll have more information soon about events surrounding the book NPR called "a can't-put-it-down modern Western."

Our Fall selection is a joint pick for LafayetteREADS! and the community-wide On the Same Page. Visit On The Same Page for more details about additional events.
