Jefferson County Library Book Club Kits consist of ten copies of a title and are packaged in a plastic tote. Kits can be checked out with a valid library card to a representative of a book club. The representative is responsible for returning the kit with all ten copies of the book inside. The kits will be checked out for eight weeks allowing plenty of time to distribute and read the book.

Each copy of the book is numbered one through ten to help the representative keep track of who has which copy. When the books are distributed to book club members, the representative is requested to write down the member’s name and contact information on the back of the sheet provided by the library. PLEASE NOTE: book club members must return their book to the representative, not to the library. The kit is then returned to the library containing all ten copies.

How do clubs reserve a title?

For a list of titles, visit the kit reservation page or search ‘Book Club Kit’ using the subject field in the library catalog. The book club representative who will pick up the kit may reserve the kit up to 12 months in advance by using the “reserve this kit” link on the site.

If you would like help please ask a staff person.
