Book Clubs

The library has two book clubs, the Johnstone Avenue Irregulars which meets on the first Tuesday of each month (September-May) at 7:00 in the library’s downstairs meeting room to discuss a book. The Gentle Reads book club meets on the third Thursday of each month at 2pm. All are welcome!

Book Kits

  • Can be borrowed by any registered adult borrower in good standing.
  • Loan period for the kits is 8 weeks.
  • Fine is $1.00 per day overdue.
  • The kits can not be renewed.
  • Kits must be returned with all contents intact.  Each kit has a tag attached to the zipper with a list of contents.
  • If the entire kit is lost or damaged, the borrower will be charged a replacement fee of $200.00.
  • The borrower of the kit is responsible for all contents of the kit.   If individual parts of the kit are missing when the kit is returned, the borrower will be notified and must take responsibility for returning the missing items as soon as possible.

Book club kits can be reserved for a specific date at the Circulation desk.  They may not be placed on hold.

The Friends of the Library operates a used book store next to the Circulation desk just past the Library’s lobby entrance.  The book store is open the same hours as Bartlesville Public Library. Books can be purchased for very little money.
