Decorah Public Library Announces Quick Bites Discussion Group

Decorah Public Library is launching a new discussion group focused on short form media that will meet over the lunch hour. This group will discuss short stories, essays, poetry, and audio/visual materials from 12:15-1 p.m. on the 2nd and 4th Tuesdays of the month.  

“Quick Bites is designed to be as accessible as possible,” says Zach Row-Heyveld, Decorah Public Library Administrative Coordinator. “All of the materials are short, everything is available online, and there’s no commitment. Join whenever it works for you or whenever you’re interested in the stories or essays. We’ll read 2 or 3 things for each meeting, depending on length of materials and the theme of the meeting.” 

Quick Bites will be hosted in a hybrid format to allow participants to join from their desks at work, home, or the library’s public meeting room. Each month, links to the materials and Zoom meeting will be available on the library’s website and social media.
