Did you know that the Parkview Hills Clubhouse has its own library? We even have our own librarians: Anita Lawson, Joan Harmens, and Carol Quandt, who try to come once a week to re-shelve, sort donations, and straighten up. New books are added often!
Our library has over 1,300 books, and more are added as we make room for them. Fiction is the biggest section, with many current, popular authors in both hardcover and paperback, and even several large print editions. Next is non-fiction with quite a variety: poetry, nature, inspiration, cooking, history, and many more. We are working on a kids section with board books, picture books, early readers, chapter books, middle school, and young adult books. Even an unabridged dictionary is in reference! Check out all the sections!
All the books can be borrowed for an unlimited loan period. No due date! Please return the books to the basket, behind the door in the library, when finished. If you have a visitor and they borrow a book and don’t finish, they are welcome to take and return when they visit next time (especially the kids!).
If you look closely, you will see a Michigan sticker on the spine of many books. That means that the book is one or more of the following:
Takes Place in Michigan
You can find all 3 types in: fiction, poetry, nature, kids books, and more. We are also always on the lookout for more Michigan Books!
Watch for some new ideas, including this one: the first 3 or 4 books in a series, all numbered, and in the same bag! That way when you borrow the bag of books, you will have a start of an author’s series in order! Find them scattered throughout the library, then grab your bag!
If you would like a certain type of book or an author not on the shelves, please write it down and leave at the desk with your name and phone number. We will look for it when we are out and about and call you when we have it.
