  • We now offer a monthly book discussion that you can participate in by phone. This is a great way to get involved in a lively book discussion with other LBPH patrons without even leaving your home! It is easy to join. Just call us at the library, 586-286-1580 or toll free 1-855-203-5274, and we will give you the details.
