Wranglestone Book Cover

Zombie thrills combine with an achingly tender gay love story in this unusual debut – the Guardian.

The Bookclub is back, with the Costa nominated Wranglestone by Darren Charlton.

This February there is unlimited access to the book on our eBook platform, Libby aka Overdrive, no waits and no holds.

If you would like to put your questions and feedback to Darren, or join in the conversation with other readers, visit the Bookclub page.


Borrowbox audio

Different platforms have exclusive content.  So in addition to Libby, to give you the best range of titles - including The Thursday Murder Club by Richard Osman - we present Borrowbox, our newest audiobook provider.

We have added over 800 new audiobooks to the library - and its all free to use.

Download the app from your favoured app store and log in with your library card number and PIN.
