What We Do

True Story Book Club

True Story Book Club

Please email me (Val) at with your name and email address so you may be added to the book club member list. Hard copies of the next month's meeting titles will be available after each meeting. You do not need to take part in the meeting, but I do need to know if you want to read the books so that I can order enough copies for everyone. I also need to know if you would like special materials such as large print or audiobook versions. Sometimes, these are available to us. 

When the materials arrive, I will process them for checkout and you will then be notified when you can come in and pick it up. Please be aware that because of Covid, I am not in the library every day, so there may be a lag in the availability of the materials. Our GrabNGo service can be found at 724-465-8841 or Please state that you want the True Story Book Club, the date of the meeting, and the title that interests you so that we can get you the right book.

>>>Please email me (Val) at at least the evening before the Zoom meeting so that I know to include you in the invite. If you are already a member of the club, you will automatically get an invite.<<<
