KitKeeper Instruction Guide

Have a book club and need multiple copies of a book? Look no further than the Library!  With your library card, your book club can borrow kits put together by us for up to 7 weeks!  Each kit comes with 10 books ready for your club to read and enjoy.  KitKeeper is the program you use to reserve one of our Book Club in a Bag kits.

How to Reserve a Kit

Once you have selected the title and date of the kit you want to reserve, you will be directed to sign in to KitKeeper. Enter your Library card number (no spaces or dashes) and your PIN
(usually, the last 4 digits of your telephone number), then click the green SUBMIT button.

Once you are signed in, complete the form with your telephone number and email address. Select MAIN BRANCH as the Pickup Library and click on the grey RESERVE THIS KIT button.
The library will send you a confirmation email, and a reminder email when your kit is ready for you to pick up at the Information Desk.  Please make sure a valid email address is filled out on the form.

IMPORTANT: If you would like someone else to pick up your reserved kit, you need to submit to the library a signed consent form. These forms are kept at our Circulation Desk at the Library.

How to Review Reservations

To review your reservations (past, present or future) or to cancel a reservation click on MY KITS at the bottom of the main KitKeeper screen.  Then, enter your library card and PIN number to review your reservations.

KitKeeper will display your future reservations by default; to see past and current reservations as well, click on the INCLUDE PAST RESERVATIONS IN LIST button.  To see more information about each kit, click on the SHOW
button beside the reservation.

How to Cancel Future Reservations

If you need to cancel a reservation, simply access your future reservation list and click DELETE next to the kit you don't want. If you see a red TOO LATE button instead of a black DELETE button, it is too close to the pickup
date for the reservation to be cancelled in KitKeeper. Please contact us directly to cancel your reservation.
