Books in a Bag

Deliver a great read to your book group!


Check out a Books in a Bag kit and you'll get a bag containing:

  • 8 copies of a book selected by library staff
  • A binder that includes background material and discussion questions

Here's how it works:

  • Bags may be checked out by anyone with a Flatirons Library Consortium (FLC) library card. The consortium includes the Boulder, Broomfield, Louisville, Longmont, Lafayette, and Loveland Public Libraries.
  • Holds can also be placed on bags, with any FLC library as the pick-up location.
  • Each cardholder may check out one bag at a time for six weeks.
  • Bags cannot be renewed.
  • Bags should be returned to a staff desk; please do not put bags in the book drops.
  • Bags must be returned complete. The bag will remain checked out on the patron's card until all missing items are returned.


Replacement costs (no processing fee): 

  • Books: $12.50 each
  • Binder: $20.00
  • Laminated Tag: $10.00
  • Bag: $20.00
  • Entire Kit $150.00
