Sponsor a Book Club Kit
Consider sponsoring or donating a Book Club Kit for use by booklovers throughout GRRL if …
…You or your company are looking for a unique way to support readers and literacy
…You are a member of a book club that is finished discussing a particular book
What is a Book Club Kit?
It’s one-stop browsing for a book club all in one bag! Each kit contains:
- 10 copies of one title
- 1 unabridged audio recording (if available)
- 1 large print copy of the book (if available)
- Discussion questions
Book club kits make it easy for booklovers to prepare for the next book club meeting without tracking down multiple copies of a book. GRRL has many fiction and non-fiction titles available, and kits can be reserved by anyone throughout GRRL and picked up at any branch.
Book club kits can be sponsored in two ways:
- Donate $200 to exclusively sponsor a kit. With your donation and our book-buying discounts, we can purchase the complete kit components to launch 12 more community members on another thought-provoking conversation. You may suggest title purchases for your kit, which we’ll accommodate if possible. In appreciation of your donation, we’ll place a gift bookplate in the kit acknowledging your generosity that will be treasured by book lovers throughout Central Minnesota.
- Donate your book club’s previous reads. Has your book club found a great read worth sharing with other clubs? If so, donate your copies to GRRL create a new book club kit. Your donation of the print copies frees up funds for GRRL to purchase an unabridged audio recording and a large print copy of the book to complete a new kit, ensuring that book club members with vision or hearing problems can also participate.
If you have questions, contact the GRRL Collection Development Coordinator.
