Borrow a Book Club is a service provided by the Burlington County Library System enabling customers to easily organize a book discussion group for two or more people.
  • A bag currently checked in does not mean that the bag will be available at the time you would like it. Staff must first check the reserve list.
  • BCLS staff asks for requests to be made at least two weeks ahead to give ample time to check, request, and send bags (a month is even better).
  • Participants will be able to borrow a labeled canvas bag for a period of 8 weeks without the option for renewal.
  • You have one week to pick up your book bag before it is placed back in general circulation.
  • When a Borrow a Book Club bag is overdue, a $1.00 per day overdue fine will be applied with a maximum fine of $15.
  • If you would like to have your book bag delivered to a branch or member library location, it is necessary to request the bag.
BCLS cardholders, in good standing are eligible to participate. In addition to groups of friends and neighbors, we encourage representatives of associations, home schooling groups, faith-based organizations and youth groups to borrow a bag.
