Book Club Kits

Book club titles available for lending to book discussion groups.

  • We have sets of titles, mostly fiction, previously read in our adult book club, Club Read.
  • If books are to be mailed from our library to you, a shipping and handling fee of $10 per set will be charged. An invoice will be included with your book shipment and should be paid upon receipt.
  • If books are picked up in person, NO handling fee is charged.
  • Each set of books is due back 8 weeks from the time they are shipped from or leave our library.
  • The borrower is responsible for replacing any lost or damaged books and notifying our library in the event that this occurs.
  • Books that are picked up in person may be put in a West Des Moines Public Library book bag. If the bag is not returned, you will be charged a $5.00 replacement fee.
  • Each book is numbered on the spine and it is recommended that you use this number to track which book each discussion participant has borrowed. We can provide a sample sign-up sheet.
