The reference librarians at the Roseville Library receive dozens of questions from the public each month. Here are couple of interesting queries we received recently:

Q. I have an old children’s book from my grandma. For sentimental reasons I would like to have it repaired. Do you know of a local place that can do such a repair?

A. There are several book binderies in our area that specialize in repairs of sentimental keepsakes like yours. To get some possible names in your vicinity, try googling the statement “book binding” with your ZIP code. Or call the library at 651-724-6001 for more suggestions.

Q. I am looking for a book club to join. Do you have any resources that might help me find one?

A. The Ramsey County Library offers many book clubs, both in-person and online, serving a wide range of reading interests. From mystery to history, we have something of interest for you—and maybe for your child, as well. You’ll find more information about our book clubs, as well as a link to upcoming meetings, on our website:

Still looking for more information? Or maybe you’re thinking about starting your own book club? Try our Book Club in a Bag feature, which offers 10 copies of a book, discussion questions, background information about the author and more. You can learn more about this program at:
