Library Sponsored Groups

Bloomingdale Public Library is more than just a place to check out books. Our library is a welcoming community space that fosters formal and informal learning. We function as a community center where the residents of Bloomingdale can explore current interests and develop new ones. We offer book discussion groups, as well as other groups and clubs that serve a wide range of ages and interests.
