Michigan Notable Books 2023
Every year, the Library of Michigan selects up to twenty of the most notable books, either written by a Michigan resident or about Michigan or the Great Lakes. The selected books are honored in the year after their publication or copyright date. Each selected title speaks to our state’s rich cultural, historical, and literary heritage and proves without a doubt that some of the greatest stories are found in the Great Lakes State. For the latest list of 2023 notable books, click or tap the image.

Books for Your Book Club
Loutit District Library offers a variety of reading options for your next book club! You asked, we listened! Our book club sets are going back in the bags and will be reservable as kits. We are gathering book club books as they are returned and to get them into their new bags. Thank you for your patience as we process the books! Each kit comes in a bag with 10 copies of the book and discussion questions. Kits can be checked out for 6 weeks and cannot be renewed.
Click here to view a complete list of our Book Club Kits. Book club moderators are encouraged to look at the complete title list of our Book Club Kits with their discussion group to review the book options and plan their selections ahead of time.
To reserve a kit for your book club, please visit the Adult Information desk, call us at 616-850-6914, or email [email protected]. Consider having a few titles chosen, so if a kit is not available for your preferred time slot we can place a different kit on hold.
When your kit is ready, it will be available for pick-up at the Check Out desk. Have questions? Give us a call at 616-850-6914.
