Book Club Sets

Updated 2017/08/23

Book Club Book Sets

Book Clubs can borrow a set of 5 or 10 copies of recent titles for their groups. The sets are refreshed yearly so titles are kept current. The sets are shared by a group of libraries and are held at Hudson Hope Public Library.

Talk to our Interlibrary loan staff to reserve a set for your group.

We recommend reserving sets well ahead of the date wanted to ensure your choice is available and to have an alternative title in case your first choice is not available.
