The St. Joseph Public Library is proud to offer juvenile book club kits for public use. Each kit includes fifteen copies of a single title.
The juvenile book club collection features both fiction and non-fiction titles at various reading levels, generally appropriate for children ages seven through twelve.
- A juvenile book club kit is a bag of 15 books checked out to one person.
- All 15 books must be checked out and returned as a complete unit.
- Each juvenile book club kit may be checked out for up to 6 weeks.
- Juvenile book club kits may not be renewed.
- The kits need to be returned at any St. Joseph Public Library branch during regular business hours; they may NOT be returned in the book drop.
The juvenile book club kits are housed at the East Hills Library, but you may pick up a juvenile book club kit at any of the four St. Joseph Public Library branches by placing a hold.
Call the East Hills Library at 236-2136 (or any St. Joseph Public Library branch) to let a librarian know the book club kit that you would like to receive and they will place a hold for you.
We currently offer sixteen titles in the juvenile book club collection and hope to add more each year. If you have suggestions for titles to include in our juvenile book club collection, please contact Children’s Librarian, Jess Gould at firstname.lastname@example.org or call East Hills Library at 236-2136.
To place a hold on a juvenile book club kit, please call the East Hills Library at 236-2136 or any St. Joseph Public Library branch.
