Book Club in a Bag
We want to make life a little easier for your book club. We have prepared “Book Club in a Bag” kits: bags that contain 10 copies of the same book, possibly enough for all the members of your book club. Each kit also contains materials with book discussion questions and further information on the title and the author. Book Club in a Bag kits are available for adult, children and teen groups. We even have titles in large print and en español, too!
Frequently Asked Questions
How do I know if a Bag is available?
In the LIBRARY CATALOG, you can see how many bags are available. If the Bag is not currently available, you may place a hold. This may take some time as the Bag has a two month lending period, so you may want to select another title.
Ten copies are not enough for my club, can I get more copies?
Place a hold on the first kit online and contact a staff member to get more copies of the same title.
How long can I keep the Book Club In a Bag? ?
You can keep the bag for 60 days with one renewal if no one has placed a hold on the Bag.
How do I return the Bag?
Take the Bag, with the 10 copies and discussion questions, to the member services desk. Do not put the Bags in the automated book returns or in book drops.
What if some of the books are missing?
Let a staff member know if any items are missing. We appreciate you making every attempt to locate and return all copies.
What if I lost the Bag?
Inform a staff member as soon as possible. There will be a charge for lost Bags.
Are there late fees on the Bag?
Overdue fines are two cents per day for the entire Bag, not the individual copies in the Bag.
