Books in a Bag

Deliver a great read to your book group!


Check out Books in a Bag for your group and you'll get:

  • 8 copies of a book selected by library staff
  • Background material
  • Discussion questions

Here's how it works:

  • Bags may be checked out by anyone with a Boulder, Louisville, or Broomfield library card.
  • Holds can also be placed on bags, with Boulder, Louisville, or Broomfield 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. Patrons who return an incomplete bag will be assessed $1/day (maximum of $10) until all missing items are returned.
