Book Clubs – Join One or Create Your Own
Are you already in a book club? Or would you like to join one?
Our libraries have special “Book Club in a Box” kits to help support your book club. To register your Book Club’s interest in using this service, please contact your local branch. Depending on demand you may be placed on a waiting list.
Each kit has 10-12 copies of the same book so everyone in your club can read the same book at once. There’s currently over 150 titles to choose from and all have a six week loan period. Best of all they’re free to registered book clubs!
Download our list of Fiction/Non Fiction Book Club in a Box titles and click on the title you want. To place a hold check that the kit located at the Wonthaggi Library has the status ‘On Shelf’. Then click the “Select an Action” menu item Place Hold and follow the prompts.
No waits. No holds. eBooks for Book Clubs now available via Libby by Overdrive
Alternatively, we also offer eBooks that allow multiple, simultaneous loans, meaning Book Club members can now borrow and read the same eBook title at the same time.
This is a new service and we are currently offering a small, curated collection of Australian and international titles, with new titles added every month.
Please note, you’ll need to be a West Gippsland Libraries member to begin with, and when you click the link below, you’ll be required to perform a one-time account setup with Libby by Overdrive, after which you can download and view eBooks on your PC, smartphone or tablet.
