Are you in a book club or looking to start one? Kent District Library makes things easy with our Book Club in a Bag program, which is available to all KDL cardholders.
We have over 270 popular fiction and nonfiction titles to choose from and we add new titles every year. Most kits come with 12 regular print copies of a book, two large print copies and a discussion guide.
A kit can be checked out through our KitKeeper service for six weeks and can be picked up at the KDL branch location of your choice. You can also make multiple reservations in advance to cut down on the monthly scramble.
