Book discussion groups have been a long-standing fixture at many libraries, and the Lisle Library District is no exception.

Five groups meet at the Lisle Library every month to discuss a variety of genres and titles, from the nonfiction group "Just the Facts" to the mystery group "Murder Among Friends."

But what about library patrons who want to create their own book clubs? What if they'd like meet on their own schedules, or meet in their homes or favorite coffee shops?

With this in mind, Lisle Library District launched Book Club in a Bag in September.

Each Book Club in a Bag is a ready-made kit that readers and book club leaders can use to make their next meeting easier.

Each kit contains 10 copies of a fiction or nonfiction title, selected by librarians as a discussion-starter. The kit also includes a reading guide with discussion questions, reviews, read-alike book suggestions, author information and book club tips.

For more information, visit the library's Connection Desk at 777 Front St., Lisle, or call (630) 971-1675.
