Book Club in a Bag

View as a List  |  Request a Title for Your Club  |

Are you in a book club or looking to start one?  The Appleton Public Library makes things easy with our BOOK CLUB IN A BAG program, available to any adult APL card holder in good standing. At least 2 weeks before your book club, simply contact the library to request a title and we will collect the number of copies that you need in the formats that you require.  Your book club selection will be collected in a handy BOOK CLUB IN A BAG zippered tote for you to pick up at the checkout desk.

We have over 150 titles currently listed as possible BOOK CLUB IN A BAG selections; these are popular titles that are available in greater numbers and in multiple formats.  APL even provides the discussion questions (just click on a cover/title to view them).  New titles are always being added; you can also request other titles that you would like to see.

Use our online form to request your BOOK CLUB IN A BAG today.

The fine print:

Checkout for BOOK CLUB IN A BAG totes is 6 weeks; renewable items can be extended if needed.

One member of the book club must check out and be responsible for the entire tote -- - a Book Club card will be created and used by library staff to manage the checkouts for the book club.

Overdue fineswill NOT be charged, however bills will apply on items not returned or damaged.

Please request your book club selection at least 2 weeks before the desired pick up date.  New and in-demand titles may require a longer wait.

Every effort will be made to supply the items requested; APL cannot guarantee the availability of every title.

Unfortunately we are unable to provide books for school book clubs or to fill teacher curriculum needs.

Leave blank for all. Otherwise, the first selected term will be the default instead of "Any".
