A-List (Author's List)

Alsip Merrionette-Park Library adult cardholders may select up to 10 favorite authors. Whenever those authors release a new title, A-List patrons are automatically placed on the waiting list to receive the book. Sign up in the Adult Services Department.

Book Discussion Group

The Group meets on the first Thursday of each month at 7:00 PM. To register, please contact the Adult Services Dept. at 708/926-7024. Books are available at the Circulation Desk the month before the discussion.
(Please pick them up more than a week in advance; during the last week before the discussion, the books are returned to their home libraries. Thank you!)

Note: Group does not meet during January and the summer months.
