Whether you want to borrow items for your private book club or join one of ours, we can help you find something to read and discuss. Most of our book clubs are currently meeting online. Our staff are more than happy to help you with eBooks, using Zoom, or with reserving our book club kits for your private group. Please contact us if you would like some one-on-one help by phone or email.
