What's in a book club discussion kit? Each kit includes:

  • 10-12 copies of one title
  • A discussion guide and questions 
  • Tips for making the most of your book club experience

How do I reserve a kit?
Choose a title from the list of Book Club Kits above. Fill out the Book Kits Request form, Telephone the Library at
(253) 292-2001, or visit the Main Library’s Reference Desk to reserve a kit for your reading group. You will need a valid library card to reserve a kit. When the kit is available to be picked up, you will be notified by phone or e-mail.

How long can I keep the discussion kit?

  • The kit is checked out to one book group member who is responsible for all of the materials. The group may keep the kit for up to 8 weeks after it becomes available for pick up.
  • Book Club Kits may not be renewed.
  • Kits can only be picked up and returned at the downtown Main Library’s Reference Desk.
  • All materials in each kit must be returned together and a library staff member will inventory the kit upon return.
  • There is a daily late fee for a kit returned after the due date, and fines will also be charged for lost or damaged materials.

Please return kits promptly so they will be available for other book groups.
