For Your Own Book Group 

We are happy to get multiple copies of books for private book discussion groups. Just let us know your schedule, titles, and about how many copies you will need. We will have them on reserve for your book group members to check out, or you can designate one person to check out the entire set. Book sets take about two weeks to arrive and have a circulation period of three weeks. Please note, it can be difficult to get enough copies of current best sellers and new releases.
