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
