Book Discussions To Go
Ferguson Library staff will be happy to prepare a kit for your next book group meeting. We provide a multi-copy set of paperbacks from the Library’s book discussion collection, along with a discussion guide that includes suggested questions and background information on the book and author. Each kit circulates for eight weeks, and may be picked up and returned at the Main Library or at any of our branches. Please call 203 351-8231 for information.
Don't need an entire kit but would like a copy of one of our book discussion guides? For selected titles, the Library also circulates the guides separately. Each guide may be borrowed for three weeks and can be renewed twice. To request a particular guide, please call 203-351-8231.
