Book Clubs

BooksBook clubs are a popular way for book lovers to discuss books, both fiction and non-fiction, in an informal friendly setting. Some book clubs meet in libraries or each other's homes, some in pubs or restaurants. While there are book clubs active in most of our branch libraries, dates and times can vary, so check with the library in advance if interested in participating in one of the book clubs. Due to the popularity of some book clubs, there may unfortunately be restrictions regarding the intake of new members from time to time, so it is advisable to check on that also.

The following is a list of libraries that host book clubs:-
