2023

OZ First Editions Club for Young Readers is a great way to start a library for your child or grandchild or a treat for book collector's who are young at heart.

Each month a picture book and a middle grade book are selected. The books are always signed first editions. Sometimes the authors come to the store for an event, and sometimes the author signs the books on his or her own time and then the books are sent to Lemuria.

The cost is just the price of the book. Each month's book can be picked up in the store, or we can ship to you monthly.

You can specify if you would like to receive only picture books or only middle grade. You can also choose to receive both picture book and middle grade selections every month.
