Online Book Club and Book News

 Book ClubSo many books, so little time!  The Rochester Public Library has a new service, an Online Book Club that delivers books right to your email inbox.  Monday through Friday you’ll receive part of a book that takes about 5 minutes to read, starting with chapter 1. Over a week, you’ll have read 2 or 3 chapters. If you like a book, you can check it out from the library, or place a hold in our catalog.  Each week features new books in each category.

To subscribe, check the box(es) next to the online club(s) of interest, enter your e-mail address, and click the Subscribe button.


This Online Book Club service is free to you, and you can unsubscribe at any time by following the instructions at the bottom of each e-mail sent.




Book NewsBook News is an easy way to learn about newly published books and their authors.

On average more than 170,000 books are published annually in the U.S.  That really makes the task of keeping up with new titles seems overwhelming, doesn't it?  Now there's an easy way to be sure you don't miss out on the types of books you would really like to read.

Choose the newsletters that match your reading interests, and subscribe to as many e-newsletters as you'd like.  You’ll receive monthly e-mail newsletters with brief descriptions and reviews of each title, as well as links to the library's catalog so you can easily reserve any books that interest you.
