Book Clubs

To comply with the COVID-19 containment measures we have had to postpone many of our diverse range of ongoing activities for now, however we are transitioning many of our regular programs to an online format so check out What's On(line) to find out about our special live events and our Online Programs to see recorded content accessible from home.

There are numerous Book Clubs operating across the Library's network of branches. Some operate within the library itself and others are facilitiated independently to operate at home. If you would like to start a book club these tips may be of assistance.

The Library has a large selection of Book Club Kits available for borrowing. The kits contain ten copies of a title along with a DVD and audio book if they are available. Where possible discussion notes are also provided. Loan periods of six weeks apply for book club kits.

Library book clubs and individual members now have access to a collection of multiuse ebooks through the RBdigital platform. Members can check out and download the titles at any time, there is no need to wait or place holds. Multi use eaudiobooks are also available for some titles. A number of titles available in this platform match with book club kits available through the library - so be sure check out our RBdigital platform! 

Book Club memberships are Fines Free so you will not be charged for late items, however you will be asked to replace any copies of items which are lost or damaged.

Please ask the staff at your local branch about registering your Book Club and for a list of the Book Club Kits.
