CLUBS

Find the perfect book! DGPL has three methods book clubs can use to get the books they need.

Librarian-Assisted Holds

An Adult and Teen Services librarian can help gather copies of the selected book on behalf of the book club. Librarians are happy to assist with the selection of a title.

To request librarian-assisted holds:

  1. Choose a book.
  2. Download and fill out the request form.
  3. Email the completed form to askus@dglibrary.org, or bring it to the library.

Individual book club members may place their own holds by phone, through their online account, in person, via chat, or email.

The Book Club Bag collection was made possible by funding from the Downers Grove Public Library Foundation through the Lillian Culbertson Restricted Use Gift Fund.
