Join your local Book Club
Our Local Library Book Clubs provide an opportunity to meet like-minded readers and participate in an engaging conversation about monthly book themes.
As there is no set book, you can attend regular sessions or enjoy the flexibility of ‘dropping in and out’ as your schedule allows. Each monthly theme will help you discover new genres and find your next great read or favourite author. Find the right Book Club for you!
Our book clubs are held at the following libraries:
Session days may vary due to public holidays. For more details on dates and themes check our yearly Book Club schedule(PDF, 46KB).
