Independent Book Clubs

Discussions in a bag – just add readers.

The library is able to assist you in forming your own book club and you can meet wherever you like – at home, in a café or at the library.

You will be assigned a library staff member who will collect information from you about your club’s preferences and make selections for your club accordingly. Such selections are made from the list of book kits we offer and are subject to availability.

Most book kitsopens a new window contain 12 of the same title. In addition to the 12 books, some kits come with large type editions and discussion notes.

Independent book clubs pay an annual fee of $100 per group. The money pays for additional book club kits.
