Provo City Library offers a wide selection of book club sets. Each complete set contains 15 copies of the title and one book club guide. The book club guide is a binder containing information about the book and author along with questions to help stimulate discussion.

Please note that:

  • Books must all be checked out on one Provo City Library Card in good standing
  • Books check out for 6 weeks with no renewals
  • Sets must be requested with at least two business days' notice.




You can check our Online Reservation System to see when sets are available. All book club titles are listed in alphabetical order.

If you aren't looking for one specific set, but instead want to see which sets are available during a specific date range, click on "More Details" under any book title. Then click on "Go To Date" to compare set availability starting on a specific date.

In order to make a reservation there must be eight open weeks at the time you wish to reserve the set. Blue colored segments of the calendar indicate that a set has been reserved at that time or that there is insufficient time between reservations for a request to be accepted. White colored segments indicate a date the library is closed. Gray colored segments indicate that a set is available for checkout on that date.

The calendar allows reservations up to 365 days in advance.

If you already know what book you'd like to reserve, type in part or all of the book's title in the search bar and click "Search." On the next page, click "Availability." This will show the book's availability for the current week.

Click "Next Available" to see the first open reservation date. Or click on "Go To Date" and select a date to see if the set is available for a specific check out date.



To reserve a set for an available date, click on the date in the calendar grid when you want to pick up a set from the library.

This will bring up a reservation range beginning on the date you selected and ending six weeks later. (Note: you cannot change the length of a reservation, and the "Change Return Date" button does not work.)

If the dates listed are the ones you want, click "Add to Cart & Checkout."

Click "Continue."

Fill out the form with your information and click "Submit My Booking."

Please add only one set to your cart and fully complete the reservation process before trying to reserve another set. Once there is a set in your cart, a system bug distorts the calendar view for other sets.



You will be taken to a booking confirmed page and will also receive a confirmation email. If you can't find this email, check your spam folder.



You can cancel your reservation at any time by clicking the link in your confirmation email and then clicking "Cancel Booking."

If you have questions or need to change your reservation dates, reply to your confirmation email and a member of the book club team will respond within two business days. Or give us a call at 801-852-6661 and ask to speak to a book club team member.



You will receive an email reminder 24 hours before your checkout date.

On the date that you requested to pick up a set, it will be waiting for you at the First Floor Reference Desk. We will hold the set for one week from this date. 

We will have the book club set, book club guide, and bag checked out and ready for you to pick up.
