How to Use Book Club in a Bag

Place holds on kits up to a year in advance and manage them by suspending and reactivating your holds closer to your Club's meeting schedule. Click here for instructions on how to manage holds. 

Some kits may be in high demand, so we recommend reactivating more than one hold at a time, to ensure at least one of your choices is ready to borrow in time.

Each book in the kit is numbered 1 - 10.  Click here for a printable tracking sheet to keep track of which member has which copy of the book.
