New Berlin Public Library:
Book Club Kits
Book clubs are a great way to connect with people to share reading and ideas together. While it is preferable to meet in-person, during these times that we are safer distancing, we can still benefit from opportunities to catch up and book chat over Zoom, Skype and Facetime. The New Berlin Public Library has created a selection of book club kits for check-out that include 10 copies of a title and discussion questions for popular fiction and non-fiction books. These kits have titles that promise to give your group a lively discussion on great fiction, social topics of interest and even poetry. To find these kits, visit the Library's catalog and search: "book club kits" and the kits available will appear. Between our NBPL collection, and those kits within our system you may order, we have over 200 options! If you'd like some book club recommendations or would like to connect with a group, we are here to help! Call us 262-754-1815!
