Does your book club need inspiration? Let the library help!

We can provide books for your club. We have more than 80 book club bundles ready to go that include 10 copies of the same title and a discussion guide. Reserve your bundle up to six months in advance.

You can review the titles in person while visiting the library’s second-floor display.

Or visit our website to place your book bundle request online at gpld.org/book-club-bundles. You also can use the form to suggest future book club bundle titles.

The librarian recommends

Have you ever wondered what it would be like to have the great Harry Houdini teach you magic? As an 11-year-old boy who lives in Harry Houdini’s New York City home, Harry Mancini gets that opportunity … or does he? “Houdini and Me” by Dan Gutman will appeal to young readers who enjoy fast-paced, humor-filled time travel books and want to know how Harry Houdini performed his illusions and escapes, librarian Lynne Schick said.

Paula Krapf is public relations and marketing manager for the Geneva Public Library. The “Beyond the Bookshelves” column runs the third Thursday of each month. Feedback can be sent to editorial@kcchronicle.com.
