Check out our Book Club Kit collection. Or open a printable list of the books in our system. The kits contain at least 10-12 paperback copies of each title along with an accompanying guide to help you explore the book's style, plot, and themes.

The titles in this collection have been carefully selected by a member of our staff, and represent a wide variety of topics, interests, and genres. Both fiction and non-fiction titles are included.

Getting a Kit:

  1. One member of your group must place a hold on the kit.

  3. The cardholder who placed the hold will pick up the kit and distribute the books to the rest of the group.
  4. When returning the kit, the cardholder who checked out the kit should check the contents against the content list and return the kit to the circulation desk.
