Book Club Kits

The Rio Rancho Public Libraries have book club kits available for your reading group to check out for six weeks. A kit includes 6-9 copies of a book and a discussion packet complete with a summary of the book, a biography of the author, and a set of discussion questions.

We can also help you launch a new book club, and the library hosts periodic seminars for book club leaders to meet with each other to discuss best practices.

For more information or to reserve a book club kit, please contact Ann McGinley at Esther Bone Memorial Library: (505) 891-5225 or .
