What is Great Books?

Important Update Auburn Placer County Libraries


All placer County Library locations will be closed starting Tuesday, March 17 and will remain closed until further notice.  That also holds true for the Auburn Library Annex. We will not be manning it at this time and ask that you hold on to your donations until we have opened again. We are grateful for the quick action on the part of Placer County to be mindful of the health and safety of our staff and volunteers. Thank you for your patience and understanding.


Friends of Auburn Library


Great Books is a discussion group which meets at the library in the Beecher Room on the second Tuesday from 1-3 PM. We are currently reading the book “Double Features – Big Ideas in Film” published by the Great Books Foundation. We also bring books we are reading to share with the others.

We are also sponsoring a mini-retreat on May 19 in Auburn. Our book is “The Glass Castle” by Jeannette Walls. We will also watch the movie. Lunch is included for $25. If interested, please contact Donna Reynolds at pianogaldonna@gmail.com.

All are welcome. Please call Walt Wilson for more info, 530-863-8224.
