One library, one book.

That's not the stocking levels, that's the name of an innovative new program that takes the traditional book club concept to another level.

Central West Libraries will distribute 200 copies of The Van Apfel Girls Are Gone across the Central West Libraries network that includes Blayney, Cabonne, Cowra, Forbes and Orange.

These copies have been added to the catalogues of the library's branches, with the rest distributed for the community to take, read and pass on.

CWL manager Jan Richards said that the book was blackly comic, sharply observed and wonderfully endearing.

"We think it will resonate with the community and reflect connections our library service has with local organisations," she said.

Mrs Richards said that it was hoped that the book would be widely discussed on social media through the library's Facebook page.

Readers can also post images of themselves with the book on www.facebook.com/CentralWestLibraries/
