Portland Public Library is now offering sets of books that you can borrow for your book group. These sets include multiple copies of the same title, often with large print or audio formats. We’ll keep the sets fresh with new titles throughout the year.
What book sets are available? The sets are listed in the library’s catalog under the title “Portland Public Library Book Discussion Sets.” You can search the catalog by that title or by “book group sets” or “book club sets.” Click on “Place a Hold” to be taken to a page where you can view the complete list of titles and select the specific book set that you want. You’ll need to log in to your account to place the hold online. With your library card, you can also call us to request sets (871-1700) or make your request in person at the library. MaineCat users can also request Portland Public Library Book Discussion Sets through MaineCat.
