Book Club Books

Asphodel-Norwood Public Library now has a new pool of books – The Book Club Collection is a set of ten books of one title, designed for book clubs but available to everyone.

If you have, or would like to start, a book club then contact the library to see about borrowing multiple copies.

The second book in our Book Club Collection is One Summer by Bill Bryson. This narrative non-fiction book about 1927 America is highly praised by several book reviews, newspapers, and Goodreads.
