Book Club in a Bag

Book Club in a BagBook Club in a Bag is a book discussion program designed for you and your family, friends, book circle, or group to read the same book together and meet in-person or online. Each book bag kit contains ten (10) print copies of a title, a binder with discussion questions to help the conversation along and a zippered canvas bag. Any group member can check out the book bag kit for their book group. The bag will be checked out for six (6) weeks and is not renewable. Book Club kit reservations are allowed by phone only. Book club kits can be sent via delivery, but must be approved by Ben Hanley or Kyle Sousa, Information Services librarians. Available titles are listed below.

Visit the Reference Desk or call us at 401-247-1920 x2 for more information and title availability.

Book Club in a Bag is a free service provided by your library. Some book club kits are sponsored by the Friends of Barrington Public Library and the Rhode Island Center for the Book via the Reading Across Rhode Island program.
