Book Club in a Box
Where: all library branches
When: Ongoing

Community and Library book clubs can now borrow a set of one title to use in their book club discussions. Contact any branch for the list or view the list on our website under "Readers Corner." You must have a library card to check out the set of books. We do ask that requests are made at least 3 weeks before you need to distribute the book to your members. Because of the high interest in this service, please include 2 alternative titles. Book clubs can be an excellent way to enjoy books more and challenge your mind, and they can also encourage you to read more, or to read books that you might not normally choose.
