Getting books for your book group: If you belong to a book group and have a Tamworth library card, you can ask to borrow multiple copies of a title for your group. We will request copies from other New Hampshire libraries through our interlibrary loan system.  Note that new titles (less than six months from publication date) will not be available to borrow from other libraries. Also, New Hampshire Library Association has dozens of READS-to-Go kits, large tote bags that contain 15 copies of a discussable book, available for book groups to borrow. See a listing of available titles at http://reads-to-go.blogspot.com/. Let us know if you’re interested in borrowing any of these kits.
