More Resources!

That’s a little bit about what we do, but what about the useful websites and interesting articles, forums, and resources out there that may be of use to book clubs? These resources will be updated whenever we find things worth saving. It’s worth noting, however,  that book clubs tend to be informal affairs and are therefore subject to change.

Note on links: The external links below include free resources (some may also have paid services) and are meant for your information only. We do not endorse any organization, websites, or products they may offer. We are not responsible for any of the content you might find. Unless you work for a Colorado library, we won’t respond to requests to add links to this website, as stated in our FAQs.
