Book Club Kits

If you belong to a book club, you know that it’s sometimes a challenge to find enough copies of a book for all of the members– which is why the Library has Book Club Kits available for checkout! Each kit contains ten copies of a book and a discussion guide containing reviews, author information, and discussion questions to help facilitate your conversation. Kits are checked out for eight weeks at a time and are on the Main floor of the library, behind the Reader’s Advisory desk. The patron checking out the kit assumes responsibility for all items and kits must be complete when returned to the library. Kits must be picked up and returned to the Plymouth District Library.

It’s the e-book version of our popular Book Club Kits! Each kit is a PDF that contains links to author information, reviews, and discussion questions. All of the titles are available to download for free with your library card on Hoopla. There is no waiting for Hoopla downloads, so all book club members can download your chosen book at the same time!
