Book Club Kits

Reading between the wines…because it’s not just about reading the book!

The Library loves a good Book Club because, as we all know, a Book Club is about more than just reading.

If you are already a Book Club member or are considering starting one, the Library can lend your group a Book Club Kit from our Book Club Kit Collection.
