This club is available in two formats: regular print books or large print books. Although we cannot guarantee that you will always be first, we can guarantee that you will always be added to the hold list automatically. You can print one of the applications below, fill out our online form, or pick up a form at the Adult Information Desk.
Following a “Better Safe Than Sorry” policy, your name will be placed on all titles by an author whether you decide to read the material or not. For example: If you choose James Patterson as your favorite author, your reserves would go on the Alex Cross series, the Women’s Murder Club series, and any miscellaneous material, except non-fiction, that he may write. Let us know when you are not interested in a particular title and we will remove your hold and pass the material on to the next person.
