What is Book Club in a Bag?

Book Club in a Bag is a book club kit of approximately 10 books (may include audiobooks or large print books) that come in a ready-to-go kit!
Currently, over 30 titles are available to choose from!

Book Club in a Bag is made possible with the generous support of the Friends of St. Thomas Public Library. Learn more about the Friends and their mission here.

 

How do I get a Book Club in a Bag Kit?

Book club kits can easily be reserved online through our online management system, KitKeeper.

To reserve a kit on KitKeeper, you MUST have a valid email address and library card. Once a kit is available for pickup, one member of the book club with a valid library card must sign the kit out on their card.

How do you reserve a kit step-by-step? Check out this handy guide to using KitKeeper!

 Helpful Hints:

  • Reserve your selection at least three days before your first pick-up date.
  • The date you select for your reservation is the date you are expected to pick up your kit at the library.
  • Please make sure that the pick-up date that you choose will not fall on the library’s closed day or a holiday. See closures here.
