Book Club Kits Titles

See all MVLC Book Club Kits titles and descriptions by typing book club kit into the MVLC catalog. If you have a particular title or subject that you are looking for try a keyword search in the catalog such as "book club kit" little bee or "book club kit" dogs.

Book club kits are created on an ongoing basis. The most current list of materials will be the MVLC catalog.


What is a Book Club Kit?

A book club kit contains 15 paperback copies of one title, a discussion guide to assist book club leaders and when available, a large print copy of the same title, and a DVD or video relating to the book. These items are placed in a canvas tote for your convenience and checked out to you for six weeks. Just grab it and go!


How do I Reserve a Kit?

Kits can be reserved up to two years in advance so that your group can plan their upcoming year and schedule the appropriate book kit for each month. At this time you must see your library’s book club kit manager to schedule kits. Kits cannot be requested via the library catalog, however you can see what kits are currently available for reserves by using the General Keyword search in the library catalog, typing in the term “book club kit” and then pressing “enter” on your keyboard.

We are currently testing a system that will allow you to reserve kits on your own! We look forward to providing this efficient service to you.
