The Village Library of Cooperstown has begun a new book group.
The group will have its first meeting Thursday, May 27. The first selection will be “The Secret Diary of Hendrik Groen, 83 1/4 Year Old” by Hendrik Groen. The program is being started by new librarian Heather Urtz, with help from her previous employer, the Mid York Library System.
Urtz started in her new role Wednesday, April 21. She replaces David Kent, who retired earlier in the year.
