Program content typically included not only a member providing a report about a book but also musical entertainment that may have been provided by members or non-members. Volumes may also include copies of the club's constitution and bylaws; roll call for each meeting; newspaper clippings, club yearbooks, correspondence, and other items inlaid; and other records of the book club.
