Book Club in a Box

Do you have trouble getting multiple copies of the books you want to read?

Book Club in a Box allows you to borrow a whole Box of books of the same title
(usually 13 copies per Box, though there could be anywhere from 10-20 copies).

You get to keep the Box for 6 weeks.

What books are available from this resource?

There are over 50 titles to choose from. Follow this link to peruse the list pdf.

You found the books you want. What do you do now?

We ask that you choose 2 or 3 different titles as Boxes are popular, and this increases your chance of getting a Box quickly.

Call the Redding Library Reference Desk at 530-245-7252 with the following information:

  • your pick of 2-3 titles from the list
  • your club information: club name, phone number, representative's library card number, etc
  • the branch at which you wish to pick up the Box

Please allow 2-3 weeks for delivery

When the Box arrives we'll contact you. Simply come and check it out on your Shasta Public Libraries Library Card.
