Book Club Kits

Book Club Kits

Halifax Public Libraries is pleased to offer book club kits for adult readers. Each kit contains eight or more copies of a popular adult book. The kit is signed out to a single cardholder for a six week loan period, with no renewals. Requests can be placed via Ask a Librarian. Please include the date you would like to pick up the kit, the branch location, and list several titles for each date, in case your first pick is not available.

A complete list of our current book club kits can be found in our Discover catalogue.
