Love to Read and Talk About It?

If you're an avid reader and would like to discuss books with others, join one of our book discussion groups. Books are available at the Circulation Desk and new members are always welcome. Call the Ask Us desk for more information: (440) 250-5462. Come join the fun!

We also have Book Club in a Bag sets that you can check out for your own book discussion group. To help book clubs thrive, we offer sets of pre-selected fiction and nonfiction books available for a six-week loan period.

The sets contain several copies of "discuss-able" titles re-purposed from our collections and include questions and other supplemental materials to enrich your discussion. You can request a Book Club in a Bag through the Ask Us desk or by placing a hold in the online catalog.
