More Information/FAQs

How do I reserve a kit?
Search our catalog or choose a title from the list on this page and click on "Request a Hold." Need help? Call the Central Library's reference desk at 434.979.7151 x4. Only one kit may be reserved or checked out at a time. Please allow one week from request to pickup. At this time we cannot accommodate reservations for specific time periods.

How long can I keep a kit?
Kits are checked out to one group member with a library card who is responsible for all of the materials. The kit is checked out for six weeks at a time. Kits may not be renewed.

Where can I pick up and return a kit?
Kits may be picked up at any JMRL branch. They must be returned to a JMRL branch during open hours, since they cannot fit into the book drop. The fine for overdue or incomplete kits is $1 a day and fees for missing books will be charged to the person who checked out the kit.

What if I lose or damage part of the kit?
JMRL policies regarding damaged item charges and collection agency fees apply to Book Club Kits as well.
