How to reserve?

Kits can be reserved through our KitKeeper service and picked up at a Henderson Libraries location of your choice. You can search for books by date of availability or by title. See step-by-step instructions. 

Once your reserved kit is ready for pickup, we'll send you a notification. The kit will be available on our hold shelf for seven days, ready for you to check out. You can borrow the kits for six weeks.


  1. Book Club in a Bag (BCIAB) kits are available to patrons ages 18 and older with a Henderson Libraries account in good standing.
  2. See the lists above for current titles. Please allow a few weeks for your kit to be available, especially for popular titles.
  3. BCIAB kits must be checked out on a single Henderson Libraries account, and the account holder is financially responsible for all six copies. You may have up to two kits checked out at a time.
  4. BCIAB kits can be checked out for six weeks (typically, one week to distribute, four weeks to read, and one week to return to the library).
  5. Once your reservation is ready for pickup, you will receive an email notification. You will then have seven days to pick up the BCIAB kit from the Service Desk.
  6. Check the contents of the BCIAB kit before leaving the library.  Each kit contains: a backpack, six paperback copies of the book, and a folder with guidelines, discussion questions, group sign out sheet, book guide, and six bookmarks.

    -Book: $15.00
    -Backpack: $10.00
    -Entire kit: $100.00
  7. Return the BCIAB kit to the Service Desk inside the library, not in the outdoor book drop. 


Q. What if a group member forgets/loses a book?
A. The BCIAB kit must be returned in the condition in which it was borrowed. Any missing or damaged items are the responsibility of the borrowing account holder.

Q. Can my group members return their book when they’re done?
A. No, the BCIAB kit must be returned all at once, or the borrower will be charged.

Q. How can I reserve a BCIAB kit?
A. Reservations can be made via KitKeeper. You can also call us at (702) 707-2665 and a team member will assist you.

Q. What if my group has more than six members?
A. You can use the sign out sheet (included in the kit) to distribute the books, or you may check out additional copies for your group in our other available formats.
