Online Book Club
So many books, so little time. For all those busy people, the South San Francisco Public Library offers an Online Book Club that delivers books electronically. Each day, Monday through Friday, the library emails subscribers a portion of a book that takes about 5-minutes to read. They're able to read two or three chapters from a book during the week. If they like a book, they can check it out of the library. Each week the library features new books.

With 11 book clubs to choose from, there's something for everyone. Patrons can read Fiction, NonFiction, Romance, Business, Good News, Teen, Mystery, They can also listen to Audio Books in their email and there's even a PrePublication Club. You can start reading books in your email before they're even published. Now you can discover great books, even if you're too busy to visit the library.

Library Director Valerie Sommer says, "This new service makes it easy for people to get back into the habit of reading. It only takes 5-minutes a day and it's fun."
