Book Discussion Sets

The following fiction and nonfiction titles are available for book discussion groups in multiple copy sets (usually 10). An additional copy of these books may be available to check out from the regular library collection.

You may reserve a title in advance for your book group. When you call, please specify the number of copies needed and the date of your  book discussion, so that we may determine the appropriate pick up and due dates.

If a book set is reserved for use by the Milton Public Library, or on loan to another user, the books may not be available at a particular time for use by your group.
