Using the Book Club Collection

In order to use the Book Club Collection, the book club must meet in the Scenic Regional or Washington Public Library District.

Book club books check out for 30 days and cannot be renewed.

If you have a book club that would like to use the Book Club Collection:

  • Contact your local branch.  They will set up your book club to borrow the books.
  • Talk with a staff member at your branch about the titles your club is interested in.  They will check to see when they are available.
  • The staff member will place holds on the titles your club requests so that they will arrive at the branch at the time the club needs them.
  • When you check out the books they must be checked out on a Scenic Regional or Washington Public Library Card.
