Books by the Stack

Build your own book club kit

Check out as few or as many copies of the book as you need.  Each book checks out separately and can be returned separately to any GRPL location. Books by the Stack books are checked out for 6 weeks (one 3-week renewal is available). Plenty of time to read, meet, and discuss! Discussion questions for each book can be downloaded below. Or ask for a copy of the questions at the Information Desk on Level 1 of the Main Library. Is your stack too tall to carry home? Check out a handy tote bag! Ask for the bag at the Information Desk as well.

Call 616.988.5400 to place a hold on available copies

Give us a call at the Main Library and we’ll be happy to get your stack together and on hold for you. We can send it to the branch of your choice or you can come pick it up at the Main Library.
