If your book group needs novels or nonfiction titles, one member of your group can check out multiple copies of one title, thanks to the library’s book group kits to go. Packaged in a royal blue tote bag, each kit contains: at least six copies of the title; book group questions to encourage a lively discussion; book reviews; and biographical information about the author. The kits check out for six weeks and can be renewed. The person who checks out the kit for the group is responsible for its contents. If you have any questions about the kits, contact the adult reference desk at 248-246-3727.
The library hosts two monthly book discussion groups:
