For Book Clubs
Book clubs provide a wonderful forum for readers to talk about books and the reading experience and libraries contain many helpful resources for book groups. If you're looking for a book club to join, check with your library. Libraries often provide meeting space for book clubs and many administer their own book discussion groups. Thinking of starting your own book club? Learn how to get started.
Librarians are experts at connecting you with the information you need, whether it's a complex research project or the next good book on your reading list. This list of award-winning books is a good place to start. Read more about recommended books for adults, teens, and children.

Banned and Challenged Books
