Book Group Kits

Do you have a book group or do you want to start one? Do you have eight or less members? Would you like to pick up book group books in a stylish canvas tote, accompanied by discussion questions, read-alikes, and background information on the book?

Well look no further! At Ventress Memorial Library, we are currently circulating book group kits: eight copies of a book (sometimes with a bonus Large Print copy) and discussion questions with a six week check out time! If you would like to inquire about what kits are currently available, email nhickey@ocln.org or call the Ventress Library today!
