Book Club Kits
The Marion Library offers a variety of titles in book club kits. A kit consists of seven copies of the same title (enough for most book groups) in a canvas bag. Kits may be checked out for five weeks. We hope your book group will enjoy these titles! Browse our book club kit collection.
Our fiction group meets at Wit's End Coffeehouse (630 10th Street) every third Tuesday (September through May) at 3:30pm. The library springs for a round of treats at Wit's End; beverages are available to purchase. Out of respect for the proprietor, please do not bring in your own food or drinks. Cathy's shop is a fun, casual, and comfy place to talk books. We hope you'll join us for this great discussion group.
