Independent Book Groups

Discussions in a bag – just add readers.

The library is able to assist you in forming your own book group 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 group’s preferences and make selections for your group accordingly. Such selections are made from the list of book kits we offer and are subject to availability.

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

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