nypl website -- updating on book discussion groups???

I see that the New Dorp group is very organized...with selections through 2011. I hope that this means that you have a regular turnout. I've clicked on names of a few other libraries (Manhattan)..and see that they are not updating the late 2010 book selections. Not enough attendance at the events to warrant the effort thru the website? or just not updating the website ? I am trying to promote the idea of bookclubs among my friends and acquaintances...and updated info on the NYPL website would be useful. Sorry, Staten Island is too far for me ! (I live in Queens).

New Dorp group at other locations

I live on the upper east side of NYC. Staten Island is too far away for me to travel. It would be great to have a Dorp Group at the 79th Street or 96th Branch.
