Book Clubs

Popular book lists

 

Book Clubs are a great way to foster stimulating conversation, engaged debate and create community connectedness.

 

 

The Book Club Collection at Yarra Libraries

Below you’ll find the list of titles in the Book Club Collection. Call or visit your library with your library card and talk to staff to reserve a set for your club. Depending on the status of the set it can be at your local branch within days or if the item is out we can reserve it for you.

 

It is important to note that all parts of a set are to be collected and returned together. Sets have a special 6 week loan period with no renewals permitted. One book club member will be responsible for reserving, collecting and returning each book club set.
