Each kit contains twelve paperback copies of a specific title, author information, discussion questions and reviews. Search SWON’s database to find available kits and a brief description of each title. To reserve one of these kits, contact the staff at any one of our ten branches. Assuming the kit is available for checkout, please allow 7-10 days to obtain it through Interlibrary Loan.
