Book Groups

Belonging to a book group is a great way to discover new authors, meet new people and talk about books.

The Library supports different types of book groups:

1. Library Facilitated Book Groups 
Members meet on a monthly basis at the library and the groups are facilitated by staff.

2. Independent Book Groups
Form your own book group with friends, family or colleagues and meet on a monthly basis wherever you like! A staff member will facilitate the selection and supply of titles to your group.
Independent book groups pay an annual fee of $100 per group. The money pays for additional book group kits.

3. DAISY Book Group
There is a book group for vision impaired readers who use DAISY readers. The book group meets regularly every first Tuesday of the month at Watsonia library. Staff assist with title selections and  the group is facilitated by a staff member from Vision Australia.  

4. Informal Bookchats
You might prefer to chat about the book you are currently reading rather than joining a Group and reading a set title. Informal bookchats are held regularly at most branches.
