Thinking of starting your own Book Club?

There are many websites that can provide you with information about starting a Book Club, selecting books to read, how and why we read, book reviews, and discussion notes for your group. Some examples are:

The Book Club – ABC
Our Book Club
The Reader's Room
Lit Lovers
Book Browse

Darebin Libraries can support your book club by providing access to our Book Clubs Collection.   By registering your Book Club with Darebin Libraries you can access the Book Clubs Collection for a small fee.  Notes and discussion questions can be provided, if required.

The fee is $27.50 per Book Clubs Collection set.

The books will be issued to your Darebin Libraries membership card for a loan period of 6 weeks.

Please contact us to find out more.
