I just wanted to let you all know about some new Book Club Kits that are available through MLC. These kits were made possible through the Mississippi Library Leadership Institute Extension Project. 

The first sets of kits available are in our Literary Landscapes Collection. These kits feature works set all over the world. Each title is also a feature film! We did not purchase the feature films, but you can encourage your book clubbers to view them or host a screening at your library if you have access to them with public performance rights.
