Check out Portage District Library’s Book Discussion in a Bag kits. In each bag, you will find multiple copies of a book title, an author bio, book reviews, discussion questions, and further reading all ready for you to sign them out to book group members and dig into a rousing discussion.
Book Discussion in a Bag kits may be checked out at the Adult Information Desk for six weeks. Two kits may now be checked out to an individual member. Borrowers will be charged $1.00 a day for an overdue kit.
Members who check out a Book Discussion in a Bag kit are financially responsible for returning the entire kit. Kits include a sign-up sheet to help borrowers keep track of the books they hand out to people in their book group. Kits returned missing any materials will accrue overdue fees of $1.00 per day until all materials are returned. Charges for replacement pieces will be determined on a case by case basis as necessary to return the kit to the collection for use.
Please let us know what your book group is reading, so we can connect members to reading and discussion guides. The library also offers lists of recommended book group titles and we’d love to share your favorites with other book groups.
