Urbandale Public Library/Leadership Book Club Kits

Book discussions are a great way for coworkers, business leaders, friends, and colleagues to engage in dialogue, share perspectives, and learn through professional reading.


Thanks to a generous donation of books from Women Lead Change, Iowa’s premier leadership organization for women, the Library is pleased to add a special collection of leadership books to the book club kits available for checkout.


The Leadership Book Club Kits are available on a first come, first served basis and check out for 8 weeks.  Kits are located by the Reference Desk.  To check availability, you can search the library catalog for the title you need and look for the book club kit symbol as seen here ⇒Book club kit symbol

Titles are in alphabetical order, click on the title to read the description from the Library catalog.
