Book Group Kits To Go is a resource-sharing program of the Farmington Public Library in which local book groups and libraries statewide may borrow book kits from us. The book kits are past reads of our Book Groups, and past Reel Readers program materials.
For book groups in our service area wishing to borrow book kits, we require a one-time meeting at the Farmington Public Library. Liaison must have a Farmington Public Library card in good standing. After this meeting, your group may borrow sets of books for a 3-month period. The book kits include discussion questions for your group to copy and use as they wish.
A list of available books can be found here.
New Mexico libraries that wish to borrow book kits may contact the Farmington Public Library and simply fill out and submit the request form. This is not a guarantee that the kit you request is available on the date you prefer. You must receive a separate confirmation for each submission. Kits can be requested no more than a year in advance.
Book Groups and Reel Readers kits are comprised of 13 books and a discussion guide for the borrowing library to copy. Reel Readers kits also include a DVD. Use of the DVD requires obtaining public performance rights to show in your local library. A company that provides public performance rights is Movie Licensing U.S.A.: http://www.movlic.com/
All materials are the property of Farmington Public Library. The cost of return postage is the only requirement for participation in Book Group Kits To Go. Participating libraries may be asked to mail the books to the next requesting library, rather than returning the kits to Farmington Public Library. We request reimbursement for lost or damaged books or DVDs.
Book Group kits require five (5) business days for processing before they can be shipped. Local book group kits will be returned to storage if not picked up within 5 days of preferred and confirmed local pickup date.
