Join Jim Heffernan’s Virtual Book Club -“Stamped from the Beginning”

By Jim Heffernan
I learned of the book club kits from Bill Landau’s column “Tales from the Library.” He talks about the new trend of “library of things” and the book club kit was mentioned. Reviewing the list of titles – “Stamped from the Beginning” seemed the only title with current political content — and it’s on the top banned books list. So – join me for a book club read. I have 10 copies of the book, and look forward to a robust conversation. To join Jim’s book club, email to

Tillamook Library’s Book Club Kits, and anyone who has been in a book club would call it the best idea in the world. Why? Because otherwise everyone in your book club needs to go out and buy a $25 book that they might not even like. If you pick one of our many book club kit titles, we have taken all the hassle away. Each kit contains 10 copies of the book, discussion questions, and a book group leader guide. Kits are checked out for six weeks, and can be reserved up to one year in advance. To reserve a book club kit, or for additional information, please call the Tillamook Library at 503-842-4792 ext.1760.
