We ♥ book clubs!
The Library is here to help your book discussion group find multiple copies of the books you’re reading–and to keep literary discussion thriving in our valley.
It’s as easy as One, Two, or Three
One: Choosing titles for your upcoming discussions?
Two: Didn’t find your title here locally? See if your title is among the HUNDREDS available through the Colorado State Library.
Three: Didn’t find it? We may be able to get it for you through Interlibrary Loan.
- Plan ahead, pick your future titles at least 3 months in advance
- Steer clear of bestsellers due to high demand
- Read the classics
- Get answers to a few frequently asked questions
