“What I had come to love about book club (besides the fabulous desserts and free liquor) was how in hearing so many opinions about the same book, your own opinion expanded, as if you'd read the book several times instead of just once.”

Book Club Kits

Blue Mountains City Library has now introduced Book Club Kits to support our many local book clubs. Local book clubs can apply for a special Book Club membership card and use this to reserve and borrow a set of books for the club (8 books + reading notes) and borrow them for 6 weeks at a time. There are over 25 different book titles to choose from and we hope to add more in the future.

Membership is great value and can be arranged in one of two ways. If your group members have purchased their own books in the past, you may find that you have a number of past book club books cluttering up your collective shelves. If so, why not gather up 8 copies of the same book (but check with our book club coordinator to make sure we don’t already have it) and donate them to create a new Book Club Kit? Alternatively a fee of $20 per member (min 8 members) gets you a 2 year membership, and we will put the funds towards purchasing new titles to create new kits.
