Books by the Stack at the Branches

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, if available, for each book can be downloaded below.

Also available at the Main Library:
Books by the Stack for Adults
Books by the Stack for Teens
Books by the Stack for Kids
