Book Club Collections

Host your own book club with the help of the Library's Book Club Collections! Salt Lake County Library lends book sets to book clubs, book groups, community groups, and more. A book club set includes 15-20 copies of a single title. These titles are great for book club discussions. Check out the lists of available titles below.

Looking for a set of books for your next book club? Reserve multiple copies.

  • Reserving Multiple Copies for your Book Club

    Call Customer Service at 801.943.4636 and ask to speak to a librarian located in the branch where you would like to pick up the books. If there are sufficient available copies, the librarian will help you reserve them for your club and answer questions.

    You may check the library's online catalog to see if the Sandy, Millcreek or South Jordan Branches have the Book Club Set Collection copies you want. You may then go directly to that library to pick them up. If you call first (through Customer Service, 801-943-4636), the copies can be pulled for you.

    • Book Club Collections are located at the Millcreek, Sandy, and South Jordan locations.

The Utah State Library offers a book group lending program called Book Buzz. Their webpage states, “Book Buzz lends book sets to book clubs, book groups, libraries, organizations, schools, and community centers. Book sets contain 15 books that check-out for 56 days (8 weeks). Reservations can be made up to 1 year in advance. When available, book sets will be shipped one week prior to requested date.

Patrons can arrange to have books shipped to their preferred library branch for pick up. Patrons are responsible to return the Book Buzz items to the State Library. The County Library no longer provides return service for the items.
