The Books in a Bag program provides book kits for book discussion groups.

  • Books in a Bag is a collection of approximately 80 titles. 
  • Each Books in a Bag kit contains 10 copies of the book, plus a notebook containing discussion questions, an author biography, a sign out sheet, and summaries of the other book kits in the collection.

Still don’t see anything that grabs you? More titles are available through the Colorado Virtual Library Book Club Resource.  If you find some options that interest you, please select 2 titles (a first choice and an alternate choice) from the Book Club Resource and call or stop by the 2nd Floor Reference Desk to make your request. A library staff member must place the online request for you. These book kits also check out for 6 weeks.

The Books in a Bag program at the Longmont Library is generously funded by the Friends of the Longmont Public Library.

The Library has Book Packs for teen reading groups and book clubs!

Books Packs for Teens!

So you're a teen with a book club? We've got you covered! We've done all the work for you with our cool Book Packs collection. With lots of great titles, our Books Packs come with 10 copies of the book, a discussion guide, and an extended check-out period of 6 weeks.  Take a look at all the title options and let us know if we can help.  One of the best parts about reading a cool book is having friends to share it with. So read on and have fun!
