Caboodles @ PCPL

Group Of Friends Taking Part In Book Club At Home

Did you know you could check out sets of books for book clubs and other groups? Once you've got yours, head over to NoveList for group discussion guides (though we can't guarantee they exist for every book on this list).

A Caboodle Kit is a kit with multiple copies of the same book that you can check out. Caboodle Kits are great for book clubs, informal book groups, or just a group of friends who want to all read the same book.

What you need to know about checking out Caboodles:

  • Caboodles can be reserved and sent to your local library for pickup.
  • Caboodles check out for 8 weeks at a time, no renewals.
  • When you check out a Caboodle Kit, you're responsible for the container and its contents.

Also, learn more about how we support and host book clubs.

Below is a current (as of 3/7/17) list of all our Caboodles. Or, you can search the catalog for them here, and sort by subject, author, tag, etc.
