Welcome to the Henderson County Public Library’s Book Club Kit reservation system.

We are excited to offer the KitKeeper system as a way for patrons to reserve book kits for their Book Club meetings. HCPL has more than 100 kits available. All of our Book Club Kits include at least 10 copies, with most kits including 15 copies or more. And many also include one Large Print copy.

KitKeeper allows patrons to browse all kits by title or by availability, and reservations can be made as far as one year in advance. Anyone with a valid HCPL library card whose account in is good standing may reserve a kit for their book club meeting.

Please note that because a reservation may have been made for the time period immediately or soon after your due date, it is very important for kits to be returned by the designated due date. However, renewals or extensions might be possible if your kit does not have a pending reservation.

Like any other borrowed material, book kits are the responsibility of the patron who checks out the kit.

 

Searching for a Book Club Kit

There are three ways to search for and reserve a kit:

  1. Browsing the complete list of titles
    • On the KitKeeper Main Menu page, click the image that says “List” or click the “GO” button.
    • Browse the list of Book Club Kit titles, and when you find one you’d like to reserve, just click the “RESERVE THIS KIT” button.
    • Find the date on which you’d like to pickup the Book Club Kit and click “RESERVE.” If there is no “RESERVE” link on your desired date, the kit is not available for that date.
    • Enter your HCPL Library Card bar code and PIN, and click “SUBMIT.” If your account is verified, click “CONTINUE” and then “Reserve this Kit” to place your reservation.
    • For local patrons, you will be notified when your Book Club Kit is available for pickup. For Kentucky Library borrowers, your kit should arrive by the requested date via KYVL courier.
  2. Searching by title
    • In the drop-down menu next to the image that says “Reserve,” find the title of the Book Club Kit you are interested in and click the “GO” button.
    • Find the date on which you’d like to pickup the Book Club Kit and click “RESERVE.” If there is no “RESERVE” link on your desired date, the kit is not available for that date.

    • On the calendar, click the date you are interested in. All Book Club Kits available on that date will be displayed on the right side of the screen. Click the title of your desired kit. (If the kit you are in interested in is not displayed in the list, it is not available on that particular date.)
    • Enter your HCPL Library Card bar code and PIN, and click “SUBMIT.” If your account is verified, click “CONTINUE” and then “Reserve this Kit” to place your reservation.
