As the Page Turns

The Reader statue with a paper copy of a book and an ebook on a tablet

As the Page Turns is our online, forum-style book club! We read one book every 2 - 3 months and discuss it as we go. 

This book club is perfect for people who don't have a lot of time and who would like to talk books whenever they have a free moment.

Full Access LCPL cardholders can use our special Freading service to download whichever book we are reading at the moment with no waiting lists.

Book Club to Go Kits

Book club kits contain multiple copies, discussion questions, and author information all packaged in a convenient rolling case.

Book Club to Go kits contain 10-15 copies of a book, author information, and questions to stimulate discussion - all packaged in a handy tote bag with wheels, and checked out for 6 weeks.

LCPL cardholders in good standing may borrow three kits at a time and reserve kits up to a year in advance. The borrower is responsible for ensuring that all copies are returned in the bag on or before the due date.
