Books to Bucks @ your Library

Will Richter, Director

Get ready for deer hunting with non-fiction books and DVDs from Grand Rapids Area Library.  We have a collection of classic texts and new items to help you prepare.  Already a buckmaster?  Check out a good book to keep you company on-stand.  Nervous about taking a library book into the field?  Browse our Friends of the Library book store!  I prefer paperbacks – they fit easily into the front pocket of my hunting coat.  Good luck!
