Book Discussion and Reader's Corner

Book Club Kits

Novi’s Book Club Kits are now available for holds! If you belong to a book discussion group, or would like to start one, you're invited to check out our selection of Book Club Kits! Each kit contains eight copies of a title selected by our librarians, along with a folder containing book discussion questions, author biography, and book reviews.

The kits are checked out to one person who is responsible for all of the materials. The kits check out for 6 weeks, they can be placed on hold, but are not renewable. New kits will be added throughout the year.
