Book Club Library


Join a book group at your local library, or start a new one!

Our Book Club Library will provide your book group with multiple copies of the books you want to talk about. We have books for all ages, interests, and reading abilities. We even have classroom sets of books for teachers. 

If you prefer to join a club that already exists, many of our libraries have book clubs that welcome everyone. Look for book club meetings at a library near you, or ask your local librarian for more information.

How does it work?

Starting a book club is fun and easy! Not sure how to get started? Check out these tips from Lit Lovers, and contact us with any questions.

When you're ready, please contact us with the following information:

  • The name of your club. Whether it's simple, straightforward, or downright silly, your members will need to know your group's name to pick up their books.
  • How many copies of the books you will need. Most groups have between 8-12 members.
  • When and where you want the books to be available for pickup. Your members can pick up books at any of our 30 libraries. Most clubs choose to pick up books about 4 weeks before that book's discussion. Example: if you regularly meet on the first Monday of each month, you may want books to be available in the first week of the previous month.
  • The email address of your group's leader. This person will communicate directly with our Book Club Coordinator about the books your group wants, changes to your schedule, and more.
  • Email addresses for every member of your group who would like to be informed about library programs and author visits in your area.
  • A list of the books your group is interested in reading. Search the complete list of books available for your club, and choose 6-12 books you are interested in. Books are scheduled based on availability, and we will always do our best to get the books you want to read. 

Which books are available?

We have over one thousand fiction, nonfiction, and biography titles available for book groups of all ages and reading abilities.
