Gab Bags
Whether you've always wanted to get a book club started but just didn't know how, or your existing book discussion group is looking for an easier way to select books, Hedberg Public Library's Gab Bags may be just what you need.

What is in the bags?

Each Gab Bag is packaged in a canvas tote and includes:
  • Eight copies of a book - western, romance, mystery, science fiction, non-fiction, history/biography and general fiction are available. Gab Bags are also available for children, young adults, and in a special movie/novel combo that includes a DVD of the big-screen adaptation of the book.
  • Discussion questions
  • Biographical information on the author
  • A selection of book reviews and a list of read-alike? books that are similar to the main selection

Where do I find the bags?
Gab Bags are now located behind the Woodruff Computer Lab near the new magazines.

How long can I keep the bag?
Gab Bags are typically checked out to one library cardholder for a six-week period and
may not be renewed.

Gab Bags were initially launched through the support of the Friends of HPL.
