Q & A

Are you a member of a book group? The library can provide reader's guides, books in a bag and advice from our bookgroup experts Marianne and Pat.

What are books in a bag?

Books in a bag are bags of 10 books with a reader's guide that your book group can check out for six weeks.

Can my book group register with the library?

Yes! Just register online. Books in a bag are available only to book groups that are registered with us.

Can I request a title for books in a bag?

Yes! We ask that you work with us at least two weeks before your group needs the book.

But we really want to read the hottest bestseller!

While we try to maintain a current collection of hot books, if you do not see what you are looking for, please ask!
