The Wilkes Mystery Book Club is for people who love true crime, thrillers, and all kinds of mysteries but don't have time to go to book clubs. Copies of each month's selection will be available at the library a month in advance, or you may choose to download the eBook via our Libby app. 
You can join us for a book discussion virtually in our Goodreads discussion forum, https://www.goodreads.com/group/show/1066171-wilkes-mystery-book-club, whenever you have time and no matter what you're wearing!

For accessing most online & digital resources: Use your library card number and PIN, which is the last 4 numbers of the phone number you gave us. Or, if you are a student in Wilkes County public schools, you can log in with your student ID (lunch) number and your PIN is the last 4 numbers of your student ID. Want to download an app? The Libby App is for downloadable ebooks and audiobooks. RB Digital is for magazines. When NC Live asks your institution, it is Appalachian Regional Library.
