In November, Hayner Library and The Old Bakery Beer Company held the first meeting of our new free bi-monthly book club, Taps & Tomes. The evening was great fun, and we enjoyed a lively discussion of the first Taps & Tomes selection, The Nickel Boys by Colson Whitehead—as well as some delicious Old Bakery beverages. We’d love you to join us Thursday, January 12, 2023, at 6:00 p.m., for a drink and a discussion of our next book selection, The Things They Carried by Tim O’Brien. All Taps & Tomes book selections can be checked out at Hayner Library and are also available through the Cloud Library and OverDrive digital platforms. The Taps & Tomes Book Club meets at The Old Bakery Beer Company, 400 Landmarks Boulevard, Alton, IL.
