Interest Groups

You do not have to be a member of Veritas to participate in Interest Groups. 

The Mystery Book Discussion Group

The group meets via Zoom on the first Tuesday of the month at 1 p.m. It enjoys between 12 - 20 members and always welcomes new members. Contact Rebecca Beyerle by email at to receive notices of future book choices. Meetings at the Highlands-Shelby Park library branch will resume when the libraries reopen.

The Ethnic Lunch Group

Because the Ethnic Eating Group’s members missed their camaraderie and fellowship, their meetings evolved into an occasional get together at lunch time via Zoom. The online gatherings provide an opportunity to socialize and share, but no set day or time has been established. If you are interested, please contact Mary Helen Thompson at

The Moveable Feast Book Discussion Group


The Moveable Feast Book Discussion Group meets monthly, usually at Mid-City Mall’s Library branch, when Veritas is not in session. For future dates and books, contact Amy King at

Movie Discussion Group (Formerly Movie-Dinner Group)

This group no longer includes dinner, but it meets via Zoom on the first Thursday of each month at 7 p.m., with each meeting lasting about an hour. The group boasts a membership of 35, with 12 to 15 typically meeting to discuss movies that are available on PBS or Kanopy, the library’s free streaming service.
