Got a book discussion group? It’s in the bag @ the library

Are you a member of book discussion group? Tired of trying to decide what to read next and then finding enough copies? Want to have discussion guides and author biographies at the tips of your fingers? Then check out the new Book Club Collection bags! There are over 30 bags, each focusing on a popular title for book discussion groups. Each bag contains everything your discussion group needs: 3 large print copies of the title, 8 regular print copies, discussion questions, an author biography and much, much more in one easy to carry bag.

The Book Club Collections are booked for one month periods and can be scheduled by contacting your local DCLS member library. Visit to find your nearest library or call 610-891-8622 for more information.

The Book Club Collections bags are a service of the Delaware County Library System, an Agency of County Government.
