Join the Favorite Fiction Fan Club!
The Favorite Fiction Fan Club is for readers who want to be among the first to read just-released titles by their favorite authors! We’ve compiled a list of more than 100 best-selling authors such as John Grisham, Dean Koontz, Jodi Picoult, and James Patterson, (to name just a few!) whose newly-released titles are immediately placed on hold for eager readers.
Tell us your favorite authors, and we will automatically place the hold for you whenever any of your authors has a new hardbound, first-edition book published. We will then notify you when the book is available to pick up. It can be checked out for two weeks with no renewals. Stop by the Information Desk or call (847) 428-3661 and choose option 3 to sign up.
