Senior Center Book Club

An open book with pages in a radial pattern.

WFPL and Watertown Senior Center host the Senior Center Book Club monthly as a book discussion group for Watertown seniors. Discussions are informal and generally based on personal reactions, not academic analysis. We are currently holding our meetings simultaneously on Zoom and in-person (for anyone who would prefer to come to the Senior Center).

Join Us!

The Senior Center Book Group meets via Zoom or at the Senior Center on the 2nd Wednesday of every month at 10:00 am. To register for a Zoom link to attend virtually, please email
