Our book club books are checked out in a "kit", simply meaning a box of books will be shipped to you. Most kits include 10 copies; however, there are some kits that have less. Please note the quantities we have available before choosing a title.
If you are planning a book club event, we recommend that send your top three choices in case the book you want is already on loan. Please email us your selections at email@example.com and we will correspond with your request.
Some things to note:
Our kits are a public library service and may only be checked out through an Alabama Public Library and distributed on site by a public library staff member. Kits are not permitted to be loaned to schools or other libraries.
Kits are usually sent out within 1-2 business days. After the book club event, the borrowing library is responsible for the collection of the books, packaging them up and returning them to APLS.
Only one kit may be checked out per library at a time.
- Kits may be kept as long as 3 months to allow for planning, scheduling, reading and returning.
- Kits cannot be split up; checking out a book club title means receiving all of the books that are in that kit.
- Due to an increased popularity of the this program, kits are loaned on a first-come-first-serve basis. Kits cannot be reserved at this time.
