How can my book club use a kit?
The kit is checked out to one book group member who is responsible for all of the materials.
The group may keep the kit for up to 6 weeks after it becomes available for pick up.
Kits may not be renewed.
Kits can be picked up and returned at any of the Glendale Libraries.
All kits are stored at the Main Library, but may be placed on hold and sent to any branch to be picked after 72 hours.
Two kits can be checked out and one on hold at a time.
Kits must be returned to the library when it is open, as they will not fit into the drop boxes.
All materials in each kit must be returned together and a library staff member will inventory the kit upon return.
There is a daily late fee of $1.00 a day for a kit returned after the due date, and fines will also be charged for lost or damaged materials.
If your group happens to lose a book, you can replace it with another copy of the book, new or secondhand, that is clean and readable or pay a replacement fee of $10.00.
If your group happens to lose a “Book Clubs to Go Kit”, the cost to replace the entire kit is $140.00
Please return kits promptly so they will be available for other book groups.
