The Truro Public Library is excited to launch a Next Chapter Book Club for intellectually or developmentally disabled adolescents and adults on the Outer Cape with local Program Coordinator Barbara Klipper. The Next Chapter Book Club is a nationwide program that provides the fun and focus of a book club to members of our communities who often lack opportunities to explore written works in a relaxed, engaging, and constructive setting. Please consider joining us! Contact Tricia or Maggie at the Truro Library for more details.
