Staff Picks: Books

Staff-recommended reading from the KPL catalog.

Setting your book club calendar?

If you're in a book club that is about to set a reading calendar for the year, don't forget to check our Book Club in a Bag offerings. We added new titles earlier this year, and will continue to add more--both fiction and nonfiction--in our ongoing effort to keep the BCIB collection as current and relevant as possible.

And if you haven't been to the Central library downtown in a few months, you may not know that the Book Club in a Bag sets are now available for patrons to browse and check out on their own, without having to talk to a staff person. You can also search for them in the catalog and place a hold to have a set sent to a different branch location for your convenience. Simply type "Book club in a bag" in the catalog to see what titles are available.

If you have any questions about Book Club in a Bag procedures, consult the borrowing guidelines or contact Reader Services.


Book Club in a Bag
Karen S


I took two bags to my book group gathering in June with the expectation we'd pick one to read and I would immediately return the other one. My book group friends couldn't choose....they both sounded so we read two books and talked about both when we met last week. It was a doubly successful evening!
