Adult book clubs
Reading doesn’t have to be a solitary passion.
If you like to talk about books you’ve read and enjoy sharing your ideas with like-minded folks, then why not think about joining a book club?
The library currently supports 11 clubs who meet once a month from March to November to discuss books covering a range of styles and subjects, with an initial catch up meeting in February to receive the first book and meet your fellow group members.
The library supplies book sets for each meeting, and the annual fee for book club membership is $20.00 (waived for 2021). The library selects new titles each year to ensure that book clubs have fresh, popular and engaging titles to discuss each month.
Each group appoints a convenor who looks after attendance and liaises between the library and the club.
