Book Club in a Bag

The library offers a quick and easy way to hold a book discussion group: Book Club in a Bag. Each kit contains ten copies of a popular book and information about the author and book, including some discussion questions, all packaged into a sturdy zipper bag for you to carry.

Each kit may be checked out for 60 days. You should have time to distribute, read and hold your discussion. The books should then be collected and returned together in the bag.

Contact the reference desk by phone, 837-3449, or email for more information.
