Want to start a book club? Looking for new titles for your existing club? The Monroe County Public Library has a unique collection to support local book clubs. "It's in the Bag" allows a patron with a library card in good standing to borrow one bag for a 6-week period. These bags contain 8 copies of a title, discussion questions, a list of readalikes, reviews, and biographical information about the author. Whenever possible, the bags will be enriched with informative and entertaining material—DVDs, cookbooks, and other background items.
Use our online catalog to find the list of Book Bags. Call the MCPL information desk at 812-349-3228 if you have any questions about borrowing one of our "It's in the Bag" book bags.
If you would like to make a suggestion for a new book for our book club bags, please use our Suggestion for Purchase form. You can let us know that your suggestion is for a book club kit in the "other information" box.
