Book Chat Bags

Book Chat Bag example

A Book Chat Bag is a canvas bag filled with 10 copies of one title and a discussion guide. Kits are checked out from the Missoula Public Library for 6 weeks and are NOT renewable.

The guide comes complete with book reviews, author information, discussion questions, and additional tips and resources for book groups.

Branch, Partner, and other Montana Libraries requesting kits outside the Missoula area will need to plan their required shipping time into the 6 week checkout period. The 'pick up' date will be the date the kit leaves Missoula, and the 'due date' will be when the kit is due back in Missoula. Please contact a MPL Reference Librarian with any questions or for assistance.

If you are not a member of the MSC Partner Sharing Group, your library will need to contact us via email or phone for reservations.
