Book Club in a Bag

Do you have a book club that is looking for their next read? Or would you like to start a book club but don't know where to start? Then check out our Book Club in a Bag kits!

Each kit comes in a sturdy bag that includes 6 copies of the same book (or 8 different books of the same subject for the theme kits), a tip sheet on how to start a book club, discussion questions, and a sheet to help keep track of each book.

Check the availability of a kit and/or place a hold today.

We also have kits for teens!
