How to check out books for your book club

Tips for your Book Club

Have you been thinking about starting a book club? The library can help!

If you are not sure what book you would like to read, try a Reads-To-Go kit! A Reads-To-Go kit includes fifteen paperback copies of a book along with discussion questions to ask during your book club. You can reserve kits ahead of time to make certain they will be available for your group. To browse titles on Reads-To-Go, type www.eventkeeper.com/kitkeeper/index.cfm?curOrg=NHLA into your internet browser. Once you have selected a title, call us to request the kit for you. 

If none of the titles on the Reads-To-Go list strike your fancy, the library may be able to inter-library loan copies of your selected title. Whatever you choose, please make sure that the title has been out for at least six months. They likely will not come in all at once, it’s possible that the library may not be able to get enough copies, and due dates will vary. The patron requesting will also be financially responsible for the copies in the event of loss or damage. 

If you would like to see how many libraries in the state have a copy of your selected title, you can search the state catalog at www.nhais.shareit.com to make an informed decision about whether to ILL your chosen title. 

To request ILL for book clubs, either send an email to slocke@laconialibrary.org or call Shayla at (603)-524-4775 ext 607.
