Do you run a book club or do you want to start one? At Ventress Memorial Library, we have book club kits that you can borrow. Each kit comes with eight copies of a book (and most include an additional Large Print copy) and discussion questions.
Local book group leaders may place Book Kits on hold for local pickup, just like any of our Library of Things items. Holds may be suspended for a future date; please note though, that like all holds, we cannot guarantee the hold will be available on the unsuspend hold date.
Kits are checked out for 42 days. Kits will not be checked in until all parts have been received. There is an overdue fine of $5 per day.
All Book Kits are first come, first served.
