Each kit contains:
- 10 copies of the title
- A Large Print copy when available
- An audio CD version when available.
- A resource folder containing the following: summary information and reviews of the book; author biography; a list of suggested discussion questions and read-alikes; tips for book groups; and evaluation forms so you can let us know what you think of the service.
Many titles are also available as ebooks and digital audio downloads.
The contents are packaged together in a rolling tote bag for easy transportation.
We offer popular titles as well as lesser-known works of local and award-winning authors, fiction and non-fiction, adult and teen titles. For a list of titles, search for ‘Book Club Kit’ in the library catalog. The current titles have been recommended by area book clubs as great for discussion!
Book Club Kits may be placed on hold and delivered to your local library for pickup. The kits check out for eight weeks, allowing plenty of time to distribute and read the book. Each kit may be renewed if there are no outstanding requests. Book Club Kits are checked out to one person, and only one kit can be checked out to a patron at a time. Books from the kit should be returned to that person, not to the library. That person is then responsible for returning the Book Club Kit with all contents to the library during open hours. Book Club Kits will not fit in bookdrops!
