Book Club in a Bag

Everything you need to have your own book club in the comfort of your own home!

How to Borrow a Book Club in a Bag:
One member of the group borrows the bag for the group with his or her library card.
That patron is responsible for distributing the books to the group members and for returning all
books after the discussion. A sign out sheet is included in the bag so the group can keep track of the books.
• Bags may be checked out for six weeks. They are not renewable.
• No more than 1 bag may be borrowed at one time by a book club.
• The replacement cost of individual parts of a bag is $10 per item or replacement of the lost book with a paperback copy.
• The Book Club bag must be returned with all its contents at the same time.
• Bags must be returned inside the Library (please do not put them in the book drop or return them to another library).
• You may reserve only one bag by calling the Adult Information Service Desk at 860-257-2811
• 10 books in every bag. Discussion questions included. Author notes included.

You cannot place a hold on the bag through our catalogue.
