BOOK CLUB SETS

Provo City Library offers a wide selection of book club sets. Each complete set contains 15 copies of the title and one book club guide. The book club guide is a binder containing information about the book and author. These guides often contain questions to help stimulate discussion at your book club.

Please note that:

  • Books must all be checked out on one Provo City Library Card in good standing
  • Books check out for 6 weeks with no renewals
