Book Group and Experience Kits

Book Group and Experience Kits

Our Book Group Kits and Experience Kits are designed to allow small groups to explore a book or subject together. The Book Group Kits come with twelve copies of a book and a list of questions that can serve as a launching point for discussion. The Experience Kits contain books, DVDs, and music about a certain theme, offering an immersion into another place, culture, or time.

Each kit can be checked out for eight weeks, with one renewal, if no one has placed a hold on the item.

Book Group Kits and Experience Kits are searchable in the catalog and may be placed on hold.
