Book Club Kits

We know it can sometimes be difficult to choose a book for your next book group meeting and to find enough copies for all the members of your group. We’ve made it easier for you by providing 10 copies of selected titles and putting them in a canvas bag which can be checked out to your book club. We’ve included discussion questions and information about each author in a folder for each collection.

Once your book discussion group has decided on a title, send a group member to the Bellevue Public Library, or call us at (402) 293-3157, to register your club and to reserve that title.  The kits will be checked out on the library card issued to your book club. Book clubs from Bellevue, La Vista, Plattsmouth and Papillion are eligible to participate.

The contact person for each club should be able to show identification and proof of current address when registering the book club. Registration allows the club to check out Book Club Kit books ONLY. No other library items can be checked out on a club’s card. Acceptance of the card is the club’s agreement to comply with the rules and regulations of the Library.
