Join a Book Club

We Love Book Clubs!

We love working with book clubs and can provide programming and support.

Book Group Bags: The library offers a collection of book group bags to support your book club. Each bag contains 10 copies of the same book, a discussion guide and author biography. Bags check out for 6 weeks. Selections are updated several times a year. See the list of adult book group bags. If you have questions about using a book group bag, please call the College Hill Information Desk at 303-658-2603.

Outreach visits: Our librarians visit book clubs to talk about library services and what makes a good book club selection. Call us to schedule a visit at 303-658-2603.
