Book Club Kits

Book Club Kits

Choosing a book for your next book group meeting can be a challenge! Finding enough copies for all the members of your group just makes it even more complicated.

The library has made it easier for you by creating book club kits using donated and withdrawn copies of discussible books and putting all the copies in a canvas bag.

Each kit includes discussion questions and information about each author in a folder for each collection. There are at least 8 copies of the book in each kit. Best of all, there are currently over 190 kits for you to choose from!

How can we get a kit?

Call us at 266-6300 or visit the Central Library, and we will help you check out a kit. The kit will be checked out on the library card of the person picking them up. The person checking out the kit may choose a due date for the kit, up to 3 months from the day they pick it up. Due to high demand, please take only one or two kits at a time. Kits can be shipped to any library in Madison as well as any public library in the South Central Library System.
