Book Clubs & Kits

If you are a member of a book club, you’ll be happy to know that Book Club Kits are available for you to check out!

What Happens in Book Club Stays in Book Club

Each Book Club Kit has multiple copies of the same book, enough for each person in your club to read. In addition to the books, our  totes may also have large print copies and books-on-CD. The tote gets checked out to one person, who is responsible for seeing that all materials are returned when your club is finished. The kits have a longer circulation period (five weeks) so you won’t have to worry about fines before your club meets again.

The library currently supports three book clubs. They are open to the public and newcomers are always welcome.
