Book Club Sets

A common challenge for book clubs is finding enough copies for all their members. Kitchener Public Library makes it easier by offering book club sets that can be checked out for an extended loan period of six weeks.

Each book club set includes 10 copies of the book and (when available) a reading guide, packaged in a cloth bag. The person who borrows the book club set assumes responsibility for returning it to the library.

Lost Book? Returned Late?

A book club set is not considered returned until all 10 copies of the book, the reading guide, and the cloth bag have been returned. If the set is returned late, the overdue fine is $2.00 per day. The person who borrowed the set will be charged a replacement cost for any books missing from the set.

Library staff can help you choose the right set for your book club, and answer any questions you may have about the book club sets.
