- Book Club in a Bag kits check out for six weeks and may be sent to any Fargo Public Library location for pick-up. Kits may not be renewed and are limited to one per card.
- The borrower of a kit is responsible for returning the Book Club in a Bag with all items intact. A tag on the outside of the kit includes a list of items to help confirm everything has been returned.

- Kits may be returned to any Fargo Public Library location, but they must be returned inside the library—not in a drop box.
