About Our Book Clubs
There are children's book clubs in a number of our libraries throughout the city!
The members of most clubs choose a book to read and get together every 3-4 weeks to discuss it. The library provides the books of course. Library staff often research the authors and books as a background to the discussion. Some clubs offer members the chance to come along and talk about the book they are reading currently - these clubs can take place more often as there is no set book to read.
