Book Club in a Bag
Book Club in a Bag is a service for the use of book clubs wanting the convenience of a pre-packaged bag complete with 10 copies of a book, a discussion guide and suggested questions and a sign-out sheet for the group leader. We have many titles to choose from, including several that are also suitable for teen clubs.
The individual who checks out the kit is financially responsible for the kit and is responsible for returning all pieces of the kit. General library borrowing rules apply.
