The Friends of the Brainerd Public Library and Prairie Bay welcome you to Season 6 of Books Burgers and Brews.  Books Burgers and Brews is a book club that is open to the public held of  3rd Mondays starting at 6 pm. We supply the books, discussion, and some fun extras, and when we can be at the restaurant, Prairie Bay prepares a fun menu to match the book.  See details on our next discussion below!  

Our vision for this event is to attract men and women alike and provide a fun venue to gather with friends and enjoy a fun discussion.  We like to call it... "A Book Club With A Kick".  We would love to have you join us! When we meet in person we have a RSVP link to secure your spot.


December 20th, 2021 - ANNUAL HOLIDAY EVENT Prairie Bay 


During this event, we will also have food, book trivia, prizes, and more.  We will also have books available from past Books Burgers and Brews discussions available for purchase.

This is a limited space event so please be sure to Register and secure your space.

This event will not have the ZOOM option.  

We are so excited to be able to offer our special holiday book exchange this year!

Here is how we do December:

1. Each attendee brings a gently used or new book that they have read in the past and enjoyed. 

2.  Inside the book cover put a note or post-it note with a short message of why this book was a special read for you. (see photo to left)

3.  Wrap the book in holiday paper and bring to the event.  

Attendees will have an opportunity to choose a book from the wrapped pile as their own.

Pick up your copy of the current read at the Brainerd Public Library front desk by asking for the Books, Burgers, and Brews once the title has been selected.  The books at the library are first come first serve and we have 25 copies set aside for this event.  The Library is now open regular hours to the public.
