Book Club Shelf
We purchase multiple copies of the fiction and nonfiction books that our book clubs discuss. These are available for anyone to borrow, so feel feel to browse our book club shelf!
Reference librarians can request books for private clubs who need multiple copies of their selections. Stop at the reference desk to inquire. Please be advised that we cannot expedite multiple copies of books with high holds.
