"It's in the Bag!" Book Club Kits
Are you a member of a book club looking for an easier way to borrow copies of the books you discuss? Have you always wanted to start your own book club, but lacked the time necessary to gather materials? Look no further! Thanks to a generous donation from the Friends of the Eagle Valley Library District, we are happy to announce a new service for local book clubs called It's In The Bag! Book Club Kits.
Each book club kit consists of ten copies of a single title and a notebook filled with information designed to stimulate discussion. Author interviews and biographical information, book reviews, and discussion questions are all contained in a sturdy canvas bag. Just grab it and go! It's in the bag!
In order to use this new service, we request that book clubs register with Adult Services Librarian, Amy Gornikiewicz, either in person at the Avon Public Library or by phone at 949-6797 and she will help you check out a kit. Each club must have at least one member with a valid Eagle Valley Library District card. That person will be responsible for picking up the kit, checking it out on a library card, distributing the books to club members, and returning the kit with all its contents to the library. Kits are checked out for six weeks and can be reserved in advance. Kits can be couriered for pick-up at any Eagle Valley Library District library. If your group happens to lose a book, we ask that you replace it with another copy, either new or gently used.
You can help us build our Book Club Discussion Kits collection by donating copies of books that your group has read. This is will be a great way for area groups to share not only titles of what they've read and enjoyed, but the books themselves. Drop off copies of your book discussion books at any EVLD location. Be sure to mention they are for the Book Club Kits.
