A note about upcoming changes to Book Club Services:

We have been pleased to support the book clubs in our community by providing multiple copies of book discussion books by request each month. This popular service has grown from 12 book clubs to more than 60. Unfortunately, reductions in the Library’s annual income have forced us to evaluate all of our services and make reductions in many areas. As of September 1, 2014, we are changing the way we serve community book clubs to reflect our reduced staffing levels. See more information in this official letter (pdf)

We encourage book clubs to submit requested titles for the Library's In-House Book Club Collection by emailing
