  • What is a "Book Club Kit"?

    In support of book clubs, Milton Public Library offers our patrons access to Book Club Kits, available to borrow from your nearest branch. We use the reservation software "Kit Keeper" for book club kit reservations. Each kit contains 10 copies of the book, and leader discussion questions.  All of our kits come in a MPL canvas bag for ease of transport.

  • Who can reserve a kit?

    Any Milton Public Library patron with an account in good standing can place a reservation on any available Book Club Kit(s). The entire kit must go out with the patron who has placed the reservation. MPL encourages book clubs to contact the library and create a book club card specifically for this purpose.

  • How do I reserve a kit?

    To access an up-to-date MPL Book Club Kit list, please visit, and go to the Adult Book Clubs webpage. You will see options to view all book club kit titles in the collection, reserve by title, or see what kits are available in a given month. Please visit our Help Page for detailed instructions.

    Reservations may be made in advance (up to one year), and MPL Book Club Kits can be borrowed for six weeks, so please ensure you schedule a pickup date a few days before your book club meeting. This allows time for book distribution, reading, discussion, and returning the kit to the library.

    If MPL's Book Club Kit reservation system is not allowing you to place a kit on hold, it may be because that kit is already on reserve for someone else during all or part of your requested reservation period. Please note that you are not able to reserve a kit for same day pick-up, in order to allow time for processing of kits. 

    To see what Book Club Kits you have reserved, click on the “My Kits” link on the main page. You will be prompted to enter your library card barcode and PIN. Click the “Submit” button.  At the Milton Public Library card verification screen, click the “Continue” button. You will see a list of your reservations. From this list, you can click on the “Show” button to see the details of each reservation.

  • How do I borrow a kit?

    Book club kits are to be borrowed as a set (in a MPL-branded canvas bag) checked out on one card, and can be picked up and returned to Main library only. You will receive a phone call or email when your book club kit is ready to be picked up. They are not renewable.
