What are they?
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 Jenni by either calling 778-7217 or emailing firstname.lastname@example.org.
What titles does the Bellingham Public Library offer?
We currently offer over 160 titles thanks to the support of the Friends of the Bellingham Public Library and individual book group donations. Go to KitKeeper for a complete listing. Click "Go" to see a list of kits. To 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.
