Book Club Kits

Looking for titles for your book discussion group? Instead of everyone ordering their own copy of the book, we have the perfect solution- Book Club Kits!  There are over 300 book club kits available through the OCPL system, each including a tote bag containing 10-12 copies of a certain book along with a discussion guide.  With such a variety of titles, ranging from popular fiction and non-fiction bestsellers to classics and teen/children's books, our kits appeal to all types of reading groups.

About OCPL's Book Club Kits:

  • A kit includes 12 paperback books and 1 reader's guide with discussion questions, in a tote bag.
  • The entire kit is checked out to one person's library card, regardless of how many books the group needs.
  • Books and guide must all be returned together in the kit bag.
  • Patrons may place holds on the kits.
  • The loan period is SIX [6] WEEKS.
  • Kits may be renewed if no holds have been placed on the item.
  • Kits may be picked up and returned at any OCPL library.
