We shall do our best to supply titles from your list of choices but sometimes, due to the level of demand, this may not always be possible. For existing groups, we can also look back over your past lists for any titles not already previously supplied. If we are still unable to supply one of your choices in a given month, we will send you a ‘wild card’ set so that your group always has something to read.
Book sets should be available to collect from your designated library up to two weeks before your group meets.
Many of the books on this list may also be available to borrow as eBooks.
As with standard book requests for individual library members, there is a charge to request books through the Choices service:
Reading groups will need to pay the charge up front as a single payment. We use the income to purchase new sets each year as well as replacing missing copies from existing sets. If groups pay upfront as a single payment, it also means we can purchase additional copies of the most popularly requested titles for the year ahead.
You can pay by cash or cheque at your local library. Cheques should be made payable to ‘Libraries Unlimited South West’.
You can also post your cheque, with your completed order form, to Stock Services, Exeter Library, Castle Street, Exeter, EX4 3PQ.
Alternatively, if you prefer internet banking, you can also pay online: sort code: 20-30-47; account number: 33266656. Please enter your library reading group name as the payment reference.
If you have a query about the reading group service, or if your group wishes to leave the service, please email firstname.lastname@example.org
If your group leaves the Choices service the group library card will revert to three week loans for items requested from general library stock.
