Does your book group have trouble finding enough copies of a book for all of your members? The Grimsby Public Library has a new collection just for you. Your book club can now borrow multiple copies of one book together in a Book Club in a Bag set.
The support of the Government of Ontario through the Ministry of Tourism, Culture and Sport is gratefully acknowledged. Grimsby Public Library's Book Club in a Bag collection was started with funds from the Government of Ontario's Building Capacity grant program.
What is a Book Club Bag?
A book club bag consists of 10 copies of a book in an easy to carry cloth tote bag.
Who can borrow Book Club Bags?
Book club sets can be borrowed by any local book club. The Book Club Bag will be checked out on the Grimsby Public Library card of the person picking up the bag. That person assumes responsibility for the bag and its contents.
What titles are available as a Book Club Bag?
We are launching the collection with the following book sets though some of the titles are still on order. We intend to add to the collection on an annual basis.
