Everything your book group needs for a lively discussion,
now available in a single box.

Book Club In A Box LOGOThe Thousand Oaks Library’s Book Club in a Box program quickly gets great literature into the hands of your book group members, so time is spent reading and discussing books rather than searching and waiting for books.

Book Club in a Box kits contain ten (10) copies of a single title, discussion questions (when available), an author biography, and a group member sign-up sheet to help keep track of books.

For more information about the borrowing policy and for a complete list of the Book Club in a Box titles, ask at the Library Reference Desk, or look for information on the Library website. With 41 titles available, it’s enough to keep your club reading all year long.
