Expand Your Reading Horizons
Our Read Outside the Lines subscription is currently full, but you can still subscribe to the email newsletter for reading suggestions, and be added to the waitlist.
- Every month, two adult books are placed on Central Library’s hold shelf for you to pick up.
- The books will be a surprise! Books are chosen by our biblio-experts, on that month’s topic. Topics cover a variety of genres, subjects and authors’ voices.
- You also get a monthly email full of further reading and resources, and even upcoming programs!
- If you are on the waiting list, you'll still get the monthly email.
- Don't have enough time to read more books? Just sign up for the monthly email!
Don't just read what everyone else is reading - dare to read outside the lines!
