Book Club Picks

Currently in a book club and looking for titles to propose at your next meeting? Interested in finding multiple copies of a well-written, discussion worthy book but looking for a less formal option than our book club kits? We’ve got you covered with our Book Club Picks Collection!

We’re offering multiple copies of titles which have been previously read in our two library book clubs. Books check out for the regular 3-week period, and can be requested by calling the reference desk (415) 389-4292 x3. Or, you can simply stop by and check them out in person!
