Book Club in a Bag

Everything you need for your book club

The Book Club in a Bag is a book discussion kit including at least 5 copies of a title with an author bio, a reading guide and other information about the book. Kits may be borrowed for six (6) weeks to allow time to read, discuss and return the material. This program was made possible by the generous support of the Friends of the Westland Public Library.

Where do I get a kit?

Selected titles from The Book Club in a Bag collection are located in the library between the Circulation Desk and the Reference Desk. Get help with Book Club in a Bag kits by asking at the Reference Desk. A full list of current titles is available below. You can find out if a "Book Club in a Bag" is checked in by searching our online catalog. Please note: some titles are listed as "archived" in the catalog but are still available for checkout. Our reference staff can retrieve them for you.

How does it work?

Choose an available title. Ask for a bag (and archived copies of the book, if needed) at the Reference Desk. Pack the bag with all copies of that title and its discussion guide, then take the bag up to the Circulation Desk for checkout. The entire kit - bag, discussion material, copies of the book - will be checked out to one cardholder, who is responsible for all contents of the kit and for any material fees incurred. All materials must be returned to the library together - books may not be returned individually. Overdue Book Club in a Bag kits (including those returned incomplete) incur fines of $1.00 per day.
