Book Clubs

Our Book Clubs are part of our Literacy Committee. Literacy has been a core mission of the Woman’s Club of Red Bank since 1896. The club was first formed as a literary society. Paired with community service, another core mission, the members of our Woman’s Club began to teach women in the community how to read. Today “literacy” has a broader meaning. It is still part of our mission statement, but it also encompasses scholarship programs, supporting local authors, promoting our community partner, the Red Bank Public Library, and now our Book Club. We invite you to join the Woman’s Club and support “modern literacy” with us.
