The Monroe County Library System is making it easier for book clubs to find good titles to enjoy with enough copies for everyone with the introduction of Book Club Kits. Each kit contains at least ten copies of the book and can be checked out by one member of the book club to share with other members. They include author information; book reviews, and in most cases some basic discussion questions. There are currently over one hundred titles available to check out. They are available on the Monroe County Library System’s on-line catalog by searching “Book Club Kits” under the subject heading for a list of available titles, or searching by call number or title to see if the desired book is included in the Book Club Kit collection. The kits can be checked out for six weeks. The replacement cost for a lost kit is $100.00.
At this time, no requests for titles for new kits can be taken however new kits will be added throughout the year.
The kits are housed at the Bedford Branch Library but can be requested from and sent to any of the Monroe County Library System’s 16 branch locations.
Book Club Kits include:
- 10 copies of the book
- Reviews of the book
- Discussion questions
Search the catalog for Book Club Kits. Place a request and have it sent to your home branch. Check out time for the kits is 6 weeks.
