Join Dear Reader.
Each day we'll email you a 5-minute portion of a book. During the week you can read 2-3 chapters and decide if you want to check the book out of the library. Every Monday we start new books. Sign up and start reading today.
Book Club in a Bag
If you are in a book club and don’t want to spend time trying to locate enough copies of the same title or preparing questions for your next discussion, just stop by the Adult Services Information Desk and ask for the Book Club In A Bag you want. You check out the entire bag of 10 books, distribute the paperbacks to your group in time for your next discussion, and everyone returns the books to you after your discussion. Then you return the whole bag to the library.
Online book clubs, book reviews, and discussion guides:
If you are in a local book club and are having trouble obtaining books, please let us help!
We can borrow book club titles from other libraries, even if those titles are in our own collection. Fill out a Material Request Form at the Information Desk or online and indicate that you need that title for a book discussion group.
