The discussion group meets on the third Tuesday of most months. At this meeting, we will be discussing SALT TO THE SEA by Ruta Sepetys. Books are available by the library's main circulation desk.

Brenda Pavnica, Adult Services Department Head, will lead the discussion. Questions? (317) 398-7121 ext. 222 or bpavnica@sscpl.lib.in.us.
