Staff Picks

The library now has a number of book club sets with 8-10 copies per set just for our book clubs. Sets can be reserved via our new Kitkeeper system by clicking this link. We encourage you to try out our new system and manage your book club requests directly. These sets are lent as a kit, so one member of your book club can reserve a kit, pick up the entire kit from the library, distribute it to the members of your book club during your meeting, and pick them all up at the following meeting before returning the set to the library. You can also pick up tracking sheets to help you keep track of who borrowed which copy.

What is a Book Club in a Bag?

A Book Club in a Bag is a kit of multiple copies (8 to 10) of one title for use by book clubs and book discussion groups.

Who Can Borrow a Book Club in a Bag?

Book Club in a Bag can be borrowed by any book club. Members of the club with a valid Perth Union Library card can check out a kit for distribution to club members. The person who reserves the kit must pick up the kit from the library, and it is signed out to you for six weeks. The person who borrows the kit is responsible for returning the complete kit. We recommend distributing and picking up kit books to return to the library at your regular book club meetings!
