Book club kits offer 10 copies of a title and a reading guide in a convenient tote. The kits check out for a 38 day loan.
How do I reserve a kit?
Reserve a kit using KitKeeper
You will need a library card in good standing. A personal library card will work, but in order to keep group reservations together, we encourage frequent users to contact Suzanne for a group account.
We understand that many groups plan their reading schedules months in advance. To establish specific pick-up dates, go to KitKeeper, our online kit reservation software. If you experience difficulties reserving a kit, contact Suzanne by either calling 778-7236 or emailing firstname.lastname@example.org.
What titles does the Bellingham Public Library offer?
We currently offer over 130 titles. Go to KitKeeper for a complete listing. Click "Go" to see a list of kits. Tod condense the list, go to the field that says "All info" and choose "List" then click on "Select." (Please note: this list is frequently changing as we add new titles and delete old ones. KitKeeper has the most current information on what's available.)
Interested in donating a kit?
You can contribute multiple ways. Write a check for $125, payable to the Bellingham Public Library Gift Fund. Submit it to Suzanne at the Central Library with your request for a title. Or, donate 10 new or next-to-new copies of a title your group loved.
