Book Club Kits in a Bag

The Goleta and Santa Ynez Valley Libraries are excited to debut Book Club Kits in a Bag! New books include: Ted Chiang’s “Exhalation”, Roxanne Gay’s “Hunger”, Erik Larson’s “The Devil in the White City”, Barbara O’Neal’s “When We Believed in Mermaids”, Kristin Hannah’s “The Nightingale”, and Alex Michaelides “The Silent Patient.” The kits contain 10 copies of a particular title and can be checked out for up to six weeks. The Goleta branch will be adding more kits throughout the spring. If you are looking for a particular title that is not offered at Goleta, Buellton or Solvang Library, let our librarians know and we will see if we can create a Book Club Kit around it. Send an email to We are also working with our partners at UCSB Arts and Lectures to create Book Club Kits that feature the authors they are bringing to our region, whether it be virtually or in-person.
