Book Lovers Day is coming up! Also known as National Book Lovers Day, this unofficial holiday is observed on August 9 every year to celebrate reading and literature. How to join in? It’s simple! Just put away your phone and other technological distractions and pick up a book to read!
Don’t know where to start? Check out our Books page, with suggested book lists, new arrivals, bestsellers and more. We even have a BookMatch service to get expert advice from a librarian about what to read next - just fill out the form and tell us what some of your favorite reads are!
Can’t make it in to the library to check out a book? We won’t tell - you can read a book on your mobile device! Check out our cloudLibrary ebook collection and download the free app for Android, iOS or Kindle Fire. You can check out for two weeks and books return themselves automatically - no late fines!
Do you like reading and sharing your thoughts with a group? The Chandler Libraries host book clubs at several locations. Visit our calendar for a complete list.
