Book Club Bags


Book Club Bags are great for book groups! They are put together to make it easier for book clubs to obtain enough copies of titles for all of their members.

What’s in the bag?
Book Club Bags contain 12 paperback copies of the title, allowing club participants to read the book simultaneously.

Who can borrow them?
One group member checks out the bag using a valid library card; this person is responsible for all of the materials in the bag.  Bags can be checked out by all Estes Valley Library card holders in good standing.

How often do they change?
The list of titles typically changes once a year.  If you have a recommendation for a Book Club Bag title please fill out a “suggest a purchase” request.

How long can I borrow a Book Club Bag?
Bags can be checked out for 6 weeks and cannot be renewed.

Can holds be placed on the Book Club Bags?
Yes, please place holds! You will be notified when the bag becomes available.
