Has Your Book Club Checked This Out?

We’ve received great feedback about our Great Picks for Book Clubs posts in March and April. If your book club is looking for additional suggestions, Fairfax County Public Library can help your group find the perfect title for a lively discussion.

In fact, we’ve already done all of the hard work for you. Are you familiar with our Book Group Discussion Kits? Each kit is developed for a title that our librarians think will make an excellent choice for book clubs. They contain ten copies of the book and a discussion guide to get the conversation started. Kits also have an extended checkout time of six weeks. Find an alphabetical list of titles on our web page or pull them up in the catalog. As an added bonus, some of our kits feature two books paired for discussion. Try reading Louisa May Alcott’s Little Women with March, the re-take on the classic by Geraldine Brooks, for example. Place one on hold for your next book group meeting!
What about teen and kids book groups? No problem. We have kits for those groups too. Check out our web page for lists of teen and children’s book kits.  
Don’t have a book group and looking to join one? Many book groups meet at library branches throughout the county. Find a complete list of upcoming dates and locations in our online calendar of events.
And check back here at About Books for more Great Picks for Book Clubs posts.
