Guys Read is an initiative to find books and create programming to interest boys in reading. Extensive book lists and more information are available on the national website.
The State Library offered a grant in 2015 to purchase book discussion sets for local Guys Read programs. It is possible the grant may be offered again in the future. The below sets were purchased with the grant, and each has at least 15 copies.
Please see the Book Discussions Set list for details on borrowing these sets for your library. Some libraries have created other Guys Read sets after the grant and those are not reflected below. You may wish to also look for the phrase Guys Read on the spreadsheet.
