Book Club in a Bag is a service of the Idaho Falls Public Library developed specifically for local book clubs. We fill canvas totes with 10 copies of patron-selected titles and reserve them for local book clubs. Because the sets check out for 6 weeks, your book club should have ample time to distribute, read, discuss, and return the set before it is due.

Check Out

To check out a Book Club in a Bag set, send one member of your book club to pick up the set at our third floor desk. This person must have an Idaho Falls Public Library card and will be responsible for distributing and gathering the books to/from members of the club. Sets are available on a first-come, first-served basis (we do not place holds on these sets). Sets cannot be renewed.

Book Club Sets

We have over 100 book club sets. Click here to download a list of these sets.

Book Selection

How do we choose the titles in our book club sets? We let our patrons choose. We accept patron nominations every September, then open up voting in October. Once patrons have chosen their top 10 picks, we purchase them as the next year’s additions to the collection.
