Borrow a book club set
If you run your own book club, we have over 150 book club sets that can be borrowed for a maximum loan period of six weeks. View the list of book club sets to see our collection.
To view availability of a title or to reserve a book club set, please use our book club reservation system.
How it works
- All books within a book club set will be signed out to your library card and you assume responsibility for the whole set
- You are required to distribute the books; copies may not be picked up individually by members of your book club
- Any lost, damaged, or late items will be charged to your account. Keep track of your set using a book club tracking sheet
- Please return all books together and on time to avoid late fees and to keep book clubs running smoothly for other groups
Custom book club sets
If there is a title that your book club would like to read that we don't have on our list, we are sometimes able to get copies from other libraries to create a custom book club set. These titles must have been published at least one year ago. Contact book club services for more information.
Book club sets to-go
In a hurry? Try our book club sets to-go. These sets have 10 books plus a discussion guide and are on the shelves ready to be signed out immediately. View available book club sets to-go in our catalogue.
Book club sets to-go are not considered returned until all 10 copies, the discussion guide, tracking sheet, and bag are all returned.
