Book Discussion Club Meeting 

The Book Discussion Club of the Garrettsville Library, a branch of the Portage County District Library, will meet on Wednesday, May 18 from 5:00 p.m. to 6:00 p.m. in the library’s meeting room. This month’s title is The 100 Year-Old Man Who Climbed Out The Window and Disappeared by Jonas Jonasson, translated by Rod Bradbury. After playing a key role in some of the most important events of the twentieth century, a healthy centenarian escapes from a nursing home and decides it’s not too late to start over on a hilarious journey involving a suitcase of cash and an elephant. Patrons may sign up for the Book Discussion Club at the Reference desk, where copies of the book are available.

The Garrettsville Library, located at 10482 South Street in Garrettsville, is open Monday, Tuesday, and Wednesday from 10:00 a.m. to 8:00 p.m.; Friday from 10:00 a.m. to  6:00 p.m.; Saturday from 9:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m.; and closed Thursday and Sunday.
