Resources for Book Groups

The library has a collection of book group books available to check out in multiple copies. You may check out as many or as few copies as you like. These books circulate for 8 weeks at a time, with no renewals.

Choosing a book for your book group? For inspiration, click on the Book Clubs tab in BookBrowse.

Can't find questions for your book online? Check out Novelist's Book Club Resources (under Quick Links). 

If your book club members read e-books on tablets, check out the Hoopla Digital Book Club Hub.  Hoopla's list of popular e-book fiction is also a good place for book groups to find their next e-book selection.

We have moved into Phase 3..

of our phased Re-open Plan.  On September 28, we welcomed the first patron in for a 45 minute computer appointment.  Social distancing requires us to limit public access to 2 computers and there are new procedures and restrictions.  

In spite of restrictions, allowing patrons back into the building is another step forward.  We anticipate opening up a COVID browsing library by the beginning of November with an open area for patrons of all ages to come in and browse new and selected materials from our larger collection.  Staff will be available to assist with requests and you can continue to place materials on hold for pickup.

We will continue to make foyer pickup available for those who don't want to come into the library.  Materials should still be returned into the exterior drop boxes.  You can check the complete list of instructions for more information.
