Do you want to start a book club? Do you need to find your next book club selection? We can help! We can set your book club up with its own library card, help you find a book, order the book and keep the books on our hold shelf until your book club members are ready to pick them up. Our librarians can consult with you on book quantities and availability of potential book club picks. Call (315) 682-6400 for more information.

Try some of our readers advisory tools for book club selection ideas and book discussion questions. BookBrowse and NoveList are both available with your library card.
