Book Discussion Kits
Book Discussion Kits are designed for book clubs and other groups to read and discuss the same book. The kits include multiple copies of the book and a discussion guide. The kit is checked out to one group member who is responsible for all the materials.
Book Discussion Kit Guidelines
Book Discussion Kits can be reserved up to six months in advance by calling the Adult Services Department, 314-994-3300 ext 2030. Kits may be picked up at any SLCL location. To check out a kit, you’ll need a valid SLCL card. Kits are checked out for up to 8 weeks, and may not be renewed. Up to two kits may be checked out at one time to an individual. Customers will not receive a phone call or email when the kit is ready for pick up.
Book Discussion Kit Return Procedures
The kit should be returned inside at any SLCL location. Please don’t leave them in a book drop. Make sure the kit is returned in its entirety, on time. There is no grace period for late returns. If a kit is returned without all of its contents, it will be considered overdue. Until the entire kit is returned, the total price of the kit appears on your record. After two late returns, the use of book discussion kits will be denied for three months.
