Join a Book Club!
The Livermore Public Library currently hosts four bookclubs:
- The Science Fiction Book Club, Livermore Public Library’s newest book discussion group, provides something for everyone, regardless of whether you are a fan of hard science fiction, epic fantasy, or something in between.
- The We're Talkin' Books! Club is a member-centered book group led by a small group of book club veterans, with reading selections based on member recommendations and consensus. Their group-managed webpage has further information.
- The Political Issues Book Club reads books about issues and trends that are driving current affairs in both the national and international arenas. Topics that have been covered include politics, governance, economics, military affairs, history, sociology, science, the climate, and religion.
- The Good Reads Book Club – Novels of Other Worlds (formerly American Heroines in Fiction) does not meet over the summer, but returns every fall with more great reading adventures!
The book clubs are run by library volunteers and new members are always welcome.

The Oath: The Obama White House and the Supreme Court by Jeffrey Toobin
Toobin, the prizewinning author of The Nine, has written a gripping insider's account of the ideological war between the Roberts Supreme Court and the Obama administration. From the moment Roberts, the chief justice of the United States, blundered through the Oath at Obama's inauguration, the relationship between the Court and the White House has been confrontational. Both men are young, brilliant, determined to change the course of the nation--and completely at odds on almost every major constitutional issue. With great attention to detail, Toobin considers the implications of many recent cases, including Hamdan v. Rumsfeld, Federal Election Commission v. Wisconsin Right to Life, and the recent ruling on the Affordable Care Act.
