Book Club in a Bag Borrowing Policy
Any patron of the Baldwin Public Library may borrow a bag.
Requests for kits must be made in person at the Adult Reference Desk.
The bag will be checked out on the library card of the Baldwin patron picking up the bag. That patron is completely responsible for the bag and all of its contents.
You may reserve a bag up to 6 months in advance.
The loan period is 6 weeks.
A patron can borrow only one kit at a time.
Check contents before returning the kit. The replacement cost of an entire kit is $175.00. The replacement costs of individual parts of the kit will depend on the cost of each particular item.
Please note that if you keep a bag past its due date, you will accrue late charges of 10 cents per barcoded item, per day.
You must return the book club kit to the Circulation Desk, not through the book drop.
The entire set must be returned together (10 books, the information folder and the bag.)
Call the Adult Reference Desk at 223-6228 with any Book Club in a Bag question.
