Coach Cal Book Club Partners with Lexington Public Library
Saturday, June 2, 2012

John Calipari wants you to read. Now he’s making sure the Big Blue Nation has another option to do so in Lexington.

Coach Cal and his book club have partnered with the Lexington Public Library to make it easier for fans to pick up a book and read. If you live in Lexington and would rather check out a book than buy it, the Lexington Public Library now carries Coach Cal’s Book Club literature at all six of its branches.

Fans can find the books in Coach Cal Book Club shelf at any of the following branches in Lexington to pick up a copy:

  • Central Library
  • Beaumont Branch
  • Eagle Creek Branch
  • Northside Branch
  • Tates Creek Branch
  • Village Branch

In honor of Coach Cal’s passion for books, we created the “Coach Cal Book Club,” a list of books Coach Cal has read and recommends. Calipari lists the literature he is reading or has read over the last few years of his career on this website, which you can find here.

As Coach Cal dives into a new book, we add it to the “On Coach Cal’s Desk” category and then cycle it off into the online library below. If you have a book you would like to recommend to Coach Cal, please leave a comment on the Coach Cal Book Club homepage.
