Find Book Club members

You can start a Book Club with just two people and let it grow from there. The ideal size of a club is eight people – a good number for a great conversation and a variety of opinions.

Library Book Club sets contain eight copies of the same title. Use social media to find more members, advertise in the local paper or put up a poster on your local community noticeboard.

Register your Book Club

Visit your local Sunshine Coast library and register your Book Club. Pay the annual Book Club fee of $100 every financial year. All funds are directed back into the purchase of new sets that only Book Club members can borrow.

Borrow Book Club sets

There are eight books per Book Club set which can be borrowed for six weeks. Book Clubs can briefly have two sets on loan at the same time, allowing you to borrow and distribute the next title at your meeting.
