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 hand-selected by and featured 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!
