E-mail Print

The Garden City Public Library is introducing three new Book Club in a Bag titles. The Library is adding Jojo Moyes's latest bestseller, One Plus One; Liane Moriarty’s latest bestseller, Big Little Lies; and National Book Award Finalist Anthony Doerr’s All the Light We Cannot See to the existing collection of 51 book club titles. The new Book Club in a Bag titles are ready to be reserved and borrowed.

If you’ve always wanted to start a book club or if your existing book club is looking for an easier way to select books, then the Library’s Book Club in a Bag may be just what you need. The Book Club in a Bag contains everything you need to run a book-discussion group.

Each canvas tote bag checks out for six weeks and contains 10 copies of a discussible title, usually a large type, audio material, and an information package with a summary, book reviews, biographical information, discussion questions, an author interview, and suggestions for further reading.

Whether you want to reserve a new Book Club in a Bag title or are looking for a recommendation for your book club, call, visit, or Librarians Laura Flanagan and Ann Garnett to talk about books with book lovers just like you.
