Spotlight: Checking out Instant Book Club Kits

Oh, book clubs. Love to be in one, hate to organize one? Well, look no further than the Washington County Library Instant Book Club Kits. Everything you need to get started for your own book discussion group is included in the kit’s canvas bag. All you have to do is add readers!

The Instant Book Club Kits are just one of many resources available to Washington County library cardholders. Each kit contains 10 copies of one title, discussion questions about the title, and information about the author. A kit is checked out to a single group member who is responsible for all of the materials. The group may keep the kit for 6 weeks.

We also add in additional resource information about organizing book clubs and using the library to find supplementary materials.

To check out an Instant Book Club Kit:

  • Search the Washington County Library catalog for “instant book club.”

Instant Book Club Kits search

  • The resulting list offers you the titles that are available in the Instant Book Club Kit collection.
  • Browse for titles that would interest your group. Click on the title to locate the kit at one of our branches, and check the availability.
  • You can come in and check out the kit at that location, or place a hold and have the bag delivered to a branch location convenient to you.

You can also limit search results by selecting “Book club kit” as a material type or "Book club kit collection" as a subject on the sidebar, and search for the title you want.
