Book Clubs Made Easy!

Have you always wanted to start a book club, but aren’t sure where to start? Have you been running a book discussion group at your library for awhile, but find it time consuming or expensive to track down enough copies of your next book for everyone who wants to participate? Are you just looking for new ideas to spice up your group? Then look no further – help is on the way!

The North Dakota State Library now has Book Club Kits, available for checkout to any North Dakota library or any individual with a ND State Library card. These pre-packaged “book clubs in a box” contain:

  • 10 copies of a selected book
  • A sign-in sheet to keep track of the book copies
  • A book club instruction sheet
  • Selected questions to help guide your group’s discussion

We’ll send the kit by mail to the requesting individual or library, and kits lend for a period of 8 weeks. Just use the included return label and mail the kit back to us at the end of the loan period. There are currently 8 Book Club Kits available for checkout, with more kits coming soon.
