The Cape May County Library now offers a quick and easy way to hold a book discussion group: Book Club in a Bag.
Each kit contains eight copies of a book and information about the author and book, including some discussion questions, all packaged in a sturdy zippered carrying bag.
A kit is checked out to one member of the book group who is responsible for all of the material. Each kit is checked out for six weeks (42 days), allowing enough time to distribute, read and hold a book discussion.
Upon completion of the discussion, books should be collected and returned in the bag as issued.
Material in Book Club in a Bag cannot be renewed, and should be returned promptly so other book groups can use them.
Request for the Book Club in a Bag kit can be made at the library circulation desk or from the library’s online catalog at
Kits must be returned during business hours to any branch of the Cape May County Library not in the book drop.
Missing books will be charged to the person who checked out the kit.
Titles available in Book Club in a Bag are: “The Color Purple” by Alice Walker, “The Dew Breaker” by Edwidge Danticat, “The Known World” by Edward P. Jones, “Loving Graham Greene” by Gloria Emerson, “The Power and the Glory” by Graham Greene, and “Remembering Babylon” by David Malouf.
