Ordering a Book

Copies of the CPL Book Discussion Group's selected title will be made available through Interlibrary Loan (ILL). During the month it is to be discussed, the fee for ILL will be waived. If you take advantage of the free ILL, we encourage you to attend the meeting and enjoy the discussion.

There are several book clubs in our community and we are happy to assist them with book selection and ILL.
