We have discontinued the subscription to Dear Reader because we couldn't determine how many people were actually using it. If you were a subscriber and are interested in continuing, please contact the library director at 301.891.7259
Dear Reader is a set of online bookclubs offered to you by the public libraries of several cities including Berkeley, Oshkosh, Fairfield and Takoma Park. You will receive the first few chapters of a book by e-mail over the course of a week and if you like it you can look for the book here, in another library, or at local booksellers. This is a great way to sample the works of many different authors.
This week's books
