Book Discussion Groups

Book Club Resources

Book Club Collection books are popular book discussion titles available in multiple copies for use by book groups. Books are available for a 6-week check-out. We are happy to obtain multiple copes not in our collection. However, we are unable to guarantee availability of popular titles. We provide discussion questions and author bibliographies upon request. Preview copies are available for check-out. For further information,  please contact the Readers' Services Desk at or (847) 438-3433 ext. 120.
