Cinco Ranch Literary Lunch League Online In July
Jul 10, 2021 –
Fort Bend County Libraries (FBCL) will offer an online option for book-club meetings this summer – all book-club meetings will take place online through Webex so that readers can interact with others in real time and participate from the comfort of home!
Fort Bend County Libraries’ book clubs represent a wide variety of books and genres. Book clubs that were previously specific to particular branches can now be enjoyed by readers all across the library system.
Books can be requested by calling the libraries, or by placing them on hold in the online catalog. Digital versions of some books are also available for download from FBCL’s eLibrary.
Because the book club meetings will be live-streamed over the Internet via Webex, participants should register for the meetings by going to the FBCL website – www.fortbend.lib.tx.us – click on “Classes and Events,” and register for the book club meetings of their choice. A link to the Webex sessions will be emailed to all who have registered.

In FBCL’s Book Talk series, library staff give a synopsis of featured books and share their thoughts on it. In this episode, hear about audiobook selections from Marvel Entertainment.
