Book Club Kits

Book Club Kits

For a decade, patrons have enjoyed checking out book club kits at the Marion Library. We're celebrating by bringing them out of the back room and making them more browsable for everyone! You can now find all available book club kits on their shelves next to the Adult Biography section. Titles range from classics to contemporary reads and include adult fiction and non-fiction, young adult fiction, and graphic novels. Each kit includes seven copies of the book in a clear carrying tote. Book club kits also have an extended circulation period of five weeks so clubs have a chance to read and prepare for discussions. Browse our book club kit collection today! If you have any questions or would like a recommendation, stop by the Information Desk! We're here to help.

Novels @ Noon Get the inside scoop on popular titles from Adult Services Coordinator Madeline Jarvis! Feel free to bring book recommendations to share.

Coffeehouse Fiction

Coffeehouse Fiction generic

Our fiction group meets at Wit's End Coffeehouse (630 10th Street) every third Tuesday (September through May) at 3:30pm. The library springs for a round of treats at Wit's End; beverages are available to purchase. Out of respect for the proprietor, please do not bring in your own food or drinks. Cathy's shop is a fun, casual, and comfy place to talk books. We hope you'll join us for this great discussion group.
