Book clubs offer an excellent opportunity to grow as a reader... participants bring different insights and life experiences to their interpretation of a book, which makes for great debate and lots of fun! 

There are many kinds of clubs to choose from, each with their own interests. While we have many novel-reading clubs, some branches now offer short story book clubs, cookbook clubs, or knitting book clubs. Learn how to run a successful Book Club.

We also offer Book Club Kits - a book club in a bag! If you'd like to start your own book club, book club kits are a great way to get everyone reading and discussing the same book. Each kit comes with ten copies of a book and a discussion guide containing discussion-starting questions, information about the author, reviews, suggestions and more. Kits are available for Adults, Teens, Kids, EAL and en français. For more on Book Club Kits, see Our Services > Readers > Book Club Kits.
