Online Book Clubs
Start reading books by email! Each day you'll receive a 5-minute portion of a book. By the end of the week, you’ll have completed 2 to 3 chapters. If you like what you read, you can finish the book by checking it out from the NPL catalog. Each week will feature a new book. All you have to do is select your local NPL Branch from the list below and sign up for as many free Book Club emails as you like.
