Book Club Kits

Is your book club looking for a great book to discuss at your next book club meeting?

Check out our Book Club Kit collection! Book Club Kits contain 10-13 copies of a book, suggested discussion questions, an author biography, and a summary of the book, with all items provided in a convenient tote bag.

Book Club Kits check out for 6 weeks, and Anaheim Public Library cardholders in good standing may borrow two kits at a time. Book Club kits are able to be requested online and picked up at your local branch. The borrower is responsible for ensuring that all items contained in the kit are returned in the tote bag to the Central Library's Reference Desk by the due date.

Find the Book Kits in the Library Catalog and view the current list of titles available and check back often, as new Book Club Kits will be added regularly.
