Is your monthly book club doing a number on your bank account? Do you find that every time you need a title from the library for your book group, it’s checked out with a waiting list? Is it your turn to moderate the next meeting and you’re having a tough time choosing a title or finding suitable discussion questions? WPL is here to help you with our Book Club to Go Kits! The BCTG kits include 10-12 copies of a single title in a handy zippered bag as well as laminated discussion questions, book reviews, author biographies and suggestions for further reading.
BCTG kits are checked out as a single item on a library card. They go out for a period of 6 weeks and are non-renewable. The kits are housed at the Central Library on Ouellette but you can place a hold and have the kits sent to any of our branches for pick-up. You can return them to any branch as well. We want to make it as easy for you as possible! Furthermore, whenever available we have also added a Large Print and/or an audiobook version inside each kit to address the varying reading needs and preferences of book club members. Many of the titles are also available as downloadable ebooks or e-audiobooks, although these aren’t part of the kits.
WPL launched the BCTG collection nearly three years ago and it has since grown to nearly sixty titles. There is a wide variety to choose from and includes book club favourites, award-winners, non-fiction, short stories, young adult, Canadian authors, mysteries and more! All the BCTG kits should be listed here in our catalogue:
We appreciate feedback and suggestions for future BCTG titles. If there’s something you or your book club would like to see in a kit please send your recommendation to CArkell@windsorpubliclibrary.com
