Book Club in a Box

Books and tips in a convenient package: Just add readers.
Having trouble getting your book club all on the same page? We can help — literally.

Book Club in a Box is everything you need to get your book club up and running: 15 copies of the same book (same edition, same page numbers), along with discussion questions and tips for leading a successful club. Just add readers (and snacks)!

No more having all the members of your club running to the library to fight over one or two available copies. We also offer longer checkout periods designed to work with book club schedules (and slower readers). You can keep out your Book Club in a Box for up to six weeks, with an option to renew for one week if no one else has placed a hold on that title.

Book Club in a Box is currently available to adult patrons. One person checks out the box and is responsible for all copies, which must be returned at the same time to any Sacramento Public Library location.

We currently offer more than 90 titles in a wide variety of genres, including:
  • Bestsellers made into movies: The Help, Cloud Atlas, Life of Pi, Running with Scissors, Midnight in the Garden of Good and Evil.
  • Top non-fiction: Steve Jobs, Battle Hymn of the Tiger Mother, Unbroken, In the Garden of Beasts, The Immortal Life of Henrietta Lacks.
  • Classics: The Adventures of Tom Sawyer, To Kill and Mockingbird.
  • Suspense: The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo series, One for the Money, Last Good Kiss.
  • Literary fiction: Middlesex, Room, Geek Love.
  • Sci-fi and fantasy: The Hobbit, The Hunger Games, The Lion, The Witch and the Wardrobe.

The Book Club in a Box program is supported in part by the generous donations of the Friends of the Sacramento Public Library and the Sacramento Public Library Foundation.
