Book Club in a Bag

Check out a tote bag full of copies of the same book to use for your book discussion group.  One person from your group can check out a bag that contains ten copies of a title and a book discussion guide with discussion questions, author biographies, and reviews.  Each bag may be checked out for two months.  Below are a list of available fiction and non-fiction titles in our catalog.  Blue titles were added in 2019, red titles were added in 2020 and green titles were added in 2021. 

 

To reserve a title for your next book club or for more information, stop by the Reference Desk, call 215-723-9109, ext. 3, or email refdesk@ivpl.org.
