What is a Book Discussion Kit?
Each kit contains 12-15 copies of a title, as well as a binder containing information about the book and its author, reviews, questions for discussion, and suggestions for running a successful book discussion group. Kits have an eight week loan period, and may not be renewed. Persons checking out the kits will be responsible for returning all materials contained in the kit. Kits can be requested through the online catalog, or by contacting Amy Wilson 859-962-4081 for assistance.
You can also use our online request form.
