Book Club Kits

Halifax Public Libraries is pleased to offer a book club kit service for our adult readers.  The kits are intended to make it easier for book clubs to borrow multiple copies of a single title. A complete list of our current book club kits can be found in our Discover catalogue (or in this print-friendly list).

Please note the following features of the book club kits:

  • Each kit contains 8 – 10 copies of the book.
  • Each kit includes an information folder consisting of author and book information, discussion questions (as available), and sign-out sheets.
  • The kit is signed out for 6 weeks.  It cannot be renewed.
  • The kit is signed out to a single library cardholder. This cardholder is responsible for the contents of the kit. The kit has the following fine structure:
    • Overdue fines: $0.25/day up to a $10.00 maximum.
    • Lost fees: Books: $8 each; Nylon Bag: $20; Entire kit: $50.
  • Holds can be placed via the Ask a Librarian form on our website. Please include your library card number, the date you would like to pick up the kit, the branch location, and list additional titles in case your first pick is not available.
  • Kits must be returned in full to a HPL branch returns desk, i.e. cannot be returned in bookdrops or to non-HPL libraries.
  • A complete list of our current book club kits can be found in our Discover catalogue.
  • Please send suggestions for additional book club kits and other feedback to us via the Ask a Librarian form on our website.
