You’ve decided on a book club or two to be held at your library.
Or perhaps, a patron would like to be able to hold their own book club and you are assisting the patron in acquiring multiple copies of a title.
And perhaps, with either scenario listed above, there is a novice wondering about the how-tos of book clubbing.
We are here to help!
WHO is the book club for? Teens? Women? Anyone? Seniors? It’s recommended a book club should consist of 5-12 members.
HOW will you be choosing your books? Is there a bookclub leader who always choses the titles or does everyone in the group take turns suggesting the next title?
WHEN and WHERE will your book club be held?
THEME? The book club could consist of each member reading a different book around a central theme (for example World World II). The theme could also be incorporated into your book club meeting—with costume or food.
PROMOTE, PROMOTE, PROMOTE. Let your patrons know about your book club or assistive book club services!
