Join one or more of our free book clubs. Each weekday we'll e-mail you a five-minute portion of a book. During the week you can read two or three chapters and decide if you want to check out the book. Every Monday, start a new book. Sign up today and start reading!
BookPage, a book review publication, is available in the library compliments of the Friends of Mead Public Library, or online.
