Club Book

Welcome to the book club where the size is just right, the books aren’t too long, and you never need to host. That’s our job. Club Book brings best-selling and award-winning national and regional authors to library communities throughout the seven-county Twin Cities metropolitan region. A program of Metropolitan Library Service Agency and coordinated by Library Strategies, Club Book is funded with money from Minnesota’s Arts and Cultural Heritage Fund.
