Book Club Kits FAQ

Q: One of my group members forgot to return their book. Who is responsible?
A: The person who checks out the Book Club Kit is completely responsible for the return of the bag and all of its contents.

Q: I can't remember what was in my bag when I got it. How do I know what to check for before returning it?
A: Each Book Club Kit has a contents sheet included with the discussions questions that lists what's included in each kit.
