The Newton Public Library is pleased to assist local book clubs with locating titles for their meetings. All new book clubs should read and review the Library Book Club Guidelines prior to requesting books. Please remember to submit a new Title Request Form each time your book club selects a new title. Title Request Forms and questions regarding book clubs may be dropped off at the Library or emailed to: firstname.lastname@example.org
Looking for recommendations for your book club? Check out the State Library of Iowa Book Club Titles website to view multiple copy sets available to Iowa libraries. The Library also has a collection of book club titles with multiple copies, that may be borrowed for book club use.
