(Lakewood, Colo. – April 1, 2015) Are you curious about book clubs? Have you ever wished you could start one with a group of friends? Now, thanks to Jefferson County Public Library and the Jefferson County Library Foundation, you can!
Beginning April 1, Jefferson County residents can check out book-club kits for up to six weeks. Each kit includes up to 10 copies of a popular book and a guide to facilitate discussion. Seventy different book titles are available, including such popular book-club titles as:
· All the Light We Cannot See, by Anthony Doerr
· The Arsonist, by Sue Miller
· The Fault in Our Stars, by John Green
· The Goldfinch, by Donna Tartt
· Unbroken: a World War II Story of Survival, by Laura Hillenbrand
· …and more.
“These kits are great for members of existing book clubs who don’t want to have to purchase books, or for start-up clubs who want to see what book clubs are all about,” said Pam Nissler, executive director, JCPL. “Summer is a great time to kick back, read and visit with friends, and we hope these kits will help to facilitate that.”
Residents can check out a book-club kit by accessing the library’s online catalog at Jeffcolibrary.org and doing a word search for “book club kits.” Kits can be placed on hold and sent to any Jefferson County Library location to be held for pick-up.
These book club kits are being made available through the generous support of the Jefferson County Library Foundation.
