|Mission Valley Public Library|
JOIN A BOOK CLUB--Looking to expand your social circles? Want to add some intellectual stimulation outside of staring at your TV, computer, and/or movie screens? Join a book club. Two things happen. By joining a book club you increase your chances of meeting other like-minded persons, who are new to you. And, it gets your act out of the house, which is also good.
New is good.
