Book Club in a Bag

IMPORTANT: Due to recent security concerns with our current reservation system, KitKeeper, we are temporarily switching to a new request form for Book Club in a Bag Reservations. We will do our best to accommodate your requests. Rest assured; all current reservations will be fulfilled as scheduled. We appreciate your patience as we work on a secure solution.

Are you in a book club or looking to start one? Kent District Library makes things easy with our Book Club in a Bag program, which is available to all KDL, GRPL, and Lakeland Library Cooperative cardholders.

We have over 300 popular fiction and nonfiction titles to choose from and we add new titles every year. Most kits come with 12 regular print copies of a book, two large print copies, and a discussion guide.

A kit can be requested online for six weeks and can be picked up at the KDL branch location of your choice. You can also make multiple reservations in advance to cut down on the monthly scramble.

Below you'll find the list of titles offered and instructions for how to reserve a Book Club in a Bag kit today!

New Book Club Kits

Please note that Book Club in a Bag kits must be reserved and checked out through our reservation request form, not our standard catalog.
